Samuel Brown married Sarah Ann Harrop (Daughter of John Harrop a builder who's operations were located on the corner of West Street) likely in the Parish Church - Cathedral 22 March 1855.
I'm on Ancestry only and can find no Banns document or other indicator of Samuel's parents beyond what I have on the Census. Looking at some other trees (which of course could be wrong or sacre bleu I could be wrong) they have different mum to me. Hence my search for details of marriage.
I could not find anything on your parish records either, using wild card search.
I can't find a burial record for Sarah either and that in part due the commonality of Sarah Brown...
Any assistance or look ups would be wonderful thank you.
I live in Western Australia so I wont be looking up anything in Sheffield any time soon.
The marriage record says that Samuels father was Henry Brown, a joiners tool manufacturer.
Samuel was 25 years old at the time of the marriage, which was by license not by banns.
Hope this helps
Heather, yes that does help and makes a huge difference. Is there a Mums name on there at all please?
assuming that Samuel was born in Sheffield there is a baptism for a Samuel Brown born Jul 1829 with a father HENRY a brace bit manufacturer and a mother called Mary could that be yours?
