    • This marriage seems to be missing from the GRO index (not found by searching for John as Gotham or Gothan, nor by searching for Elizabeth Simcock) but it is in the index to the local registers on the Staffordshire BMD website.
      This shows (in the index for 1838):
      GOTHAN [sic], John married SIMCOCK, Elizabeth at Bucknall, St Mary's Church, registers      at Stoke-On-Trent, ref. 2/01/055

      Other trees claim 12 Nov 1839 or 12 Nov 1838 in Bucknall Parish Church, Stoke-on-Trent. Looking at images of the PR on FMP I can't find this marriage, but the register is strange - the old style register was being used still, and whilst there were many registers in 1837, hardly any in 1838 or 1839, so it looks like another register may also have been in use.
