Thank you so much for all of your hard work in trying to help me, it is very kind of you.
My main problem with my family tree is that I don't know when or where Samuel Langley snr was born or where and when his father Thomas was born. This has been my stubbling block for a couple of years now. According to Samuel's marriage certificate his age at marriage read FULL AGE, Annie's age read 18, making her birth date being around 1853. Her residence was 3 Sheriff street east at the time o marriage
My father before he died always thought the family were from Somerset or Devon, but I'm not sure after my investigations. As for Thomas's marriage certificate I don't have that at this time
I believe Samuel Snr was a mariner but I can't confirm that. Robert his son and my grandfather John were both Mariners, that I definately can confirm.
As for Annie's father, according to the marriage certificate of Samuel and Annie he was called Robert Fitzpatrick and his profession was a mariner. I wonder if this is how Samuel met Annie, through her father, if Samuel was also a mariner and worked on the same ship.
I will try and follow up on your leads
Thank you once again for your help
