    Default Christopher Waugh

    My relative Christopher Waugh married Esther Smith 1862 Durham. HIs parents were Richard and Diana Morley Waugh.
    I would love more information about Christopher's parents.
    I appreciate any help.
    Christopher is my Great, Great Grandfather.
    Thank you

    Hi Sharon, could we have a little more info please. When and where was Christopher born? Have you found him on any census? What are the names of his children and when/where were they born? Do you know what his occupation was, did he continue to live in Durham after his marriage?

    Where did the parents name come from? I ask because there is a tree on Ancestry with different parents names.

    Parish Register records of the baptisms of both Richard William & Mary Jane WAUGH at Woolwich, that Sandy found for you in post 5, state that Richard WAUGH was a Corporal Sappers & Miners of New Road in the case of Mary Jane & a Private Sappers & Miners of Waterman's Fields in the case of Richard William.

    My relative Christopher Waugh married Esther Smith 1862 Durham.
    Have you actually got the marriage certificate? That's the way to start answering the question.

    Otherwise where do the parents' names come from?
