Hi, I wonder if someone more knowledgable could possibly help or offer some guidance?
I have today received the marriage certificate of my 3rd GGrandparents, Thomas Leedham & Caroline Booth who married at Southwark Register office in Dec 1839.
The fathers of bride & groom are given as George Leedham & Charles Booth, a shoemaker, Charles was also a witness to this marriage
I know from census info that Caroline Booth was born c1817 and in either Tonbridge or Cranbrook, Kent.
My problem as such is I am trying to locate either a baptism record for Caroline or find some census info on Charles?
All I know about Charles is from the marriage cert ie that he was a shoemaker and was alive in 1839? However, I have located a Charles Booth born c1791 Cranbrook, Kent on the 1861 census, his occupation is given as shoemaker and he is in a workhouse in Chatham St Paul's ( Ref RG9/483/143/2 ) he is stated as a widower, I have tried to locate this person on 1851 census without success??
Anyway that's it! If anyone can help or offer some guidance I would be extremely grateful.
