Help with Ancestor - Sarah Ann Kirkham from Nottingham
I have a Sarah Ann Kirkham born 1835 in Nottingham. I know she married Thomas Chapl(a)in and had serveral Children. However, I can not find any marriage between them. It is possible that Sarah Kirkham married William Barnes in Sep 1849 and remarried John Thomas Chapl(a)in in Dec 1850. I can find a death for William Barnes in Dec 1849. What I don't know is this true. How can I find out?
I have a census for 1881 with Sarah as head, I understand that Thomas died before 1881, but do not know when.
I can not find a census for 1871 for Sarah or her children.
The childrens names are Joseph 1857, William ?? 1861, Thomas 1863 and Rebecca 1865. All the children I can find births for as Chaplain buy not for William only one I can find is Chaplin and registered in Radford where others are Nottingham.
Incidentally I can not find anything for Sarah Kirkham or Thomas Chapl(a)in for census 1861, 1851 or 1841.
Can anybody help me out here.
