I am looking into the possibility that my ggggrandfather married an unknown Welford woman.
My gggrandfather's name was William Welford Collier.He was born in England about 1822-1823whereabouts unknown.He was married in 1848 in the Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Northumberland. His father's name was John Collier. I am raising the possibility that this John Collier married a Welford woman.
My family had a habit ofusing the mother's maiden surname as the middle name for the men in the family.
Does anybody knowof a Collier man and a Welford woman marriage in and around the Newcastle/ and or Yorkshire area during the late 1700's and early 1800's?
Grasping at straws here, but at least worth a try.
