John Lunn b 1857, Brompton Yorkshire & Mary Appleton
I am trying to find information on my great grandmother, Mary Appleton, who married John Lunn (born 17th Dec 1857) approx 1880 and lived in Brompton, near Northallerton in the North Riding of Yorkshire.Her death certificate shows her age at the time of her death as 74 years,giving her date of birth approx 1855.
Birth certificates of her 8 children, below, show her maiden name as Mary Appleton:
John Charles 1881
Nora Jane 1883
Amy Elizabeth 1884
George Herbert 1887
William Robert 1889
Clara Theresa 1896
Censuses of 1891 and 1901 show the family of John and Mary Lunn living in Brompton.However I have not been able to confirm the date of their marriage, her date of birth or the names of her parents.
I do have a certificate of marriage at the register office in Northallerton for John Lunn, age 23 years, bachelor, miller of Brompton, fathers name, John Lunn (dec`d) and Polly Appleton, age 22years, spinster, housekeeper of Brompton, fathers name, George Appleton, Farm Labourer.Witnesses were Priscilla Bradley and Robert Appleton.
This is the only example I have of the use of the name Polly.The 1881 census shows a George Appleton, widower, 55, farm labourer and Mary, 25, housekeeper and Sarah, 12,scholar, living in Brompton.
Can anyone add any further information.
