Added all the missing details for both grooms and brides (marital status, occupation, abode, father’s occupation) and witnesses to 1,076 marriages at Easington St. Mary the Virgin, and added the last 2 marriages in 1948 to finish out that year. We are finished updating marriages at this church; hooray!
A sample marriage before the update:
- 30 Oct 1926 Wilfred Rose (age 23, son of Charles Rose) married Mary Stephenson (age 24, daughter of Thomas Stephenson)
and the same marriage after the update:
- 30 Oct 1926 Wilfred Rose (bachelor, surface worker at coal mine, age 23, of 1 Coronation Street, Easington Colliery, son of Charles Rose, miner) married Mary Stephenson (spinster, age 24, of 18 Ouseburne Row, West Hartlepool, daughter of Thomas Stephenson, dock worker)
Witnesses: Christopher Edward Magee; I. Rutherford
If you have purchased a marriage at this church, we encourage you to review it to get the new information and see if any additional changes were made. Log in, click My Account, then click the My Orders tab to see your purchases and sort by the Modified column to put changed records at the top. If a change (other than a minor spelling change) was made to a record you purchased, an email has already been sent to you with the correction.
This is part of our mission to update our Easington-district marriages that are missing information.
