    Smile John Garrett National School Master St. Neots

    Hi Folks

    I am trying to find out a little more about John Garrett age 35 born in Clerkenwell Middlesex (with the occupation of Master of National School) who was living at High Street, St. Neots in Huntingdonshire with his wife Elizabeth age 40 who was born in Barnsley Yorkshire, according to the 1861 Census.

    I am unsure if the National School was in St. Neots.

    I am also having difficulty in locating a marriage for John Garrett and his wife Elizabeth. John Garrett's parents were Charles Garrett and Mary Anne Cheffins.

    Any help to clarify matters would be gratefully appreciated.

    Regards

    Richard

    Hi Richard
    They were together in later census with no kiddies.

    Just to say that John who was the son of Charles & Mary Ann Garrett is only 7yrs old in 1851.
    something does not add up here.

    Hi Whitebait and georgiep

    Thanks for your replies I rather favour Elizabeth Noble as the wife of John Garrett being the most local to St. Neots, but there are others such as Elizaberth Crowe who married a John Garrett in Samford, Suffolk in 1852. John son of Charles Garrett and Mary Anne Cheffins was in fact born on 29 Oct 1825 that would make him 16 at the time of the 1851 Census and 26 at the time of the 1851 Census.
    Regards
    Richard
