    • Research notes



      I have looked hard for the marriage in the index on FreeBMD. TO DO: look at the local indexes in case mistranscribed to the central ones (or to FreeBMD)

      Either,
      * they may have married but an error in the register or failure to send a copy of the PR entry to the local registration office and GRO means it cannot be found indexes;
      * as above but the entry was sent but lost (index-wise) at the GRO (the GRO created slips of paper to make the index - inevitably some will have been lost)
      * they married but an error in the PR entry and / or index means the entry cannot be found
      * they married but Margaret wasn't an Emmerson at marriage (see consideration of this below - summary: unlikley explanation) 
      * they did not bother to marry - seems unlikely unless there was a good reason
      * they did not marry as one of them was not free to marry. It is worth noting that the likely date of marriage, c. 1859, James would have been aged 30, so there had been plenty of time for him to marry and for the couple to part company. With divorce effectively unavailable some chose to marry bigamously but others to live as though married.

      Living in a highly populated area, with many moving in from elsewhere and themselves moving around it would probably have been easy for James and Margaret to live without any but close relations of Margaret knowing they weren't married.     

      Could Margaret have married and been widowed and then married James?



      3 Margaret Em(m)ersons married in the period 1857 - 1860,
      one in Southwark RD, very unlikely, one in Guisbro RD, not very likely, one in Sunderland - quite possible (q2 1859).
       
      Latter was to a Joseph Walker or George Baker.
      What's more, I haven't found Joseph or George with a wife Margaret in the 1861 census suggesting one of the couple had died (though of course, esp given that the marr was in Sunderland, they could have been at sea, and I haven't searched thoroghly for mis-transcriptions etc.) 
      Marriages of a James Robinson to a Margaret, 1857 - 1861 include one of a Margaret Baker (but q2 1858 so can't be Margaret widow of Geo as they weren't even marr by then!), one of a Margaret Walker; no surnames matching those in the Guisbro and Southwark marriages.
      Marriage to Margaret Walker was q1 1861, Skipton. 2 snags - Skipton abt 90 miles from Washington and after the birth of Ruth, who was registered as a Robinson, not Walker. There were a no. of James and Margarets in or nr Yorkshire in 1861, incl one in Skipton, who could probably have been the couple who married in 1861 - I haven't checked them thoroughly (e.g. children), BUT I haven't found the Skipton couple in the 1851 census and they don't have any children, despite both being shown as aged 39 in the 1861 census, so I suspect it was them who married in Skipton RD, not my James and Margaret.
