William Rhodes

Marriage of William Rhodes abt. 1821 to Ann could be Sanderson or Boardman can anyone help? It seems Sheffield marriages between 1820 and 1836 are not available on any family web site. I have five of may Rhodes relatives married within this era.

Re: William Rhodes

Hi Barry,

William Rhodes, bachelor, married Ann Boardman, spinster, on
the 19th June 1821, Sheffield Parish Church.

Re: William Rhodes

Hi Barry,

I see that Moira has filled you in...but just wanted to add that Sheffield & District Family History Society have a CD of marriages from 1735 to 1851. You can purchase it through Genfair.

Kindest regards

Re: William Rhodes

Hi Elaine, the birth records download I purchased do not live up to my expectations, I assumed they would be searchable by name but all there is are records with reference numbers. Was this a waste of money?

Thomas Rhodes marriage

The marriage took place between Nov 1824 and Nov 1825 according to the list I sent you, regards Barry.

Re: Thomas Rhodes marriage

This is what Barry sent me.

John Rhodes & Elizabeth Furness
Ref. U/219/656.

And as he stated between Nov 1824 & Nov 1825.

If someone is going to the Archives over the next little while and could check if there is anymore info I am sure he will be very appreciative.

I can never remember when fathers names and occupations stated to be show on the marriage entries. I think that would help Barry.

Re: Thomas Rhodes marriage

Thanks for that Angela, Can you tell me what FMP is and is it accessable? regards Barry. How was the weather in Cornwall?

Re: Thomas Rhodes marriage

Hello Barry,

FMP is Find MY Past and is a subscription based website although a very good one.

Cheers Roger.

Re: Thomas Rhodes marriage

Hi Barry

The weather was awful. We had one really good day (Thursday) which we spent in St Ives. The rest of the week was scattered showers and a little sunshine. As my hubby is a match fisherman it didn't stop him fishing, and with 15 lakes he was in fishing heaven.

Find My Past have the images for the Sheffield Anglican registers which have been filmed at the archives.

Re: William Rhodes

Hello,
I also have many Rhodes in my tree including William b-1799, married to Ann Sanderson b-1803. Unsure of marriage date but first child was in 1824 so 1821 is probably close. This Rhodes family are members of the Howard St. Independent Church and not St. Peter.

Re: Rhodes family

Hi Paul, We may be related, William Rhodes married Ann Sanderson on 19 June 1821 at St. Pauls. The Christenings took place at the Howard Street Independent church but I think marriages had to be at St. Pauls. I am on Ancestry if you can access it to see how closely we are related. Regards Barry

Re: Rhodes family

Hi Barry & Paul,

Just to straighten the church out...

All marriages to 1848 were supposed to take place at Sheffield Parish Church St Peter & Paul) now the Cathedral.Or their chapelries. i.e. Ecclesall Parish Church. There were very few churches until 1848.

Many Sheffielders did go to Rotherham/Bradfield & Ecclesfield rather than get in the queue in Sheffield.

Regards.

Re: Rhodes family

Hi Barry,
Sorry not on ancestry but can tell you William Rhodes is my GGGG Grandfather.

Paul

Re: Rhodes family

Hi, William Rhodes is my 3rd great grandfather and I am descended from John Rhodes which line are you descended from? Are you in England or abroad. regards Barry

Re: Rhodes family

Hi Barry,
I'm also through John Rhodes. His daughter Mary Ellen (b-1859) married William Brown in 1876 and that ends my Rhodes line.

I am in Canada and have a lot of Sheffield people in my past. I actually stopped at the Sheffield Archives back in May 2013.

Do you go back past Thomas Rhodes, William's father? I'm not sure but possibly Thomas was c-17 Jun 1772 in Cleckheaton, Yrks-any confirmation?

Also would you have a birth date for Mary Ellen Rhodes, John's daughter?
