      Why didn't Philip and Sarah marry until 1846? Hannah was born in 1843, but Philip was Hannah's father (according to his will) and both Philip and Sarah had witnessed the wedding of Philip's brother Isaiah Inman in 1838, so they must have known each other for some time. But it was only when Hannah was pregnant with their second child that they married. Apprentices were not allowed to marry, but Philip was too old to be an apprentice, nor does he appear to have been away in the forces.
      Curiously, he didn't marry his second wife either until after his first child with her was born (again, he claimed her daughter as his natural child in his will).

      David Greenwood and Jane Clough witnessed the marriage. I don't know the connection to either, but a Jane Clough (age 45) was in the same household as Emma Craven (age 15, a linen winder) in the 1841 census, so maybe Jane was a Craven relation. (In the same house there was another Jane Clough age 35 b Scotland with a Matthew age 30 and Frederick age 8 - both born Yorks)

    Philip Inman's home in Kirkgate
    My 2 x great grandfather seems to have been living in Kirkgate by 1851 and until his death in 1894. These cottages include the one where his youngest son Philip was born in 1892, and this was quite likely where he had lived for all of those years, with both his wives and families.

    Described by Philip Inman junior (b.1892) in his autobiography "No Going Back" (p.11):
    The home I was born into was a cottage, one of a row of four, long since demolished. They were whitewashed and had thatched…
