Now, I found that an Ambrose Tunstall Sheriffe (note spelling)died March Quarter 1882 in Halifax, Yks - 9a-334
Now I found the family listed on the 1881 census as TUNSTALL You can find that census at: http://www.familysearch.org/http://www.familysearch.org/
Now, I found a marriage registered for Ambrose Tunstall Sherriff (note spelling) and Sarah Bush Hunt in December Quarter 1869 in Bradford 9b-280. However, there seems to be a bit of a mix up because Sarah is also listed as Sarah Bush Flint. I tend to think it is Hunt because of her daughter in 1891. But - if you send for the marriage certificate, I would stipulate the grooms name and leave the brides name blank. You might also want to send for one of the children's birth certifates to confirm if Sarah's maiden name is Hunt.
