My great great grandmother, Mary Kelly was born in Liverpool in 1850. In 1870 she married William Elliott at the Parish Church in Liverpool. The marriage certificate states that William's father was a wesleyan minister.
Her first born child was my great Grandmother, Mary Elliott born in 1870.
18 months later, Mary Kelly remarried at the same church to John McKeown. My great grandmother Mary Elliott then became known as Mary McKeown. The strange thing is that the second mariage certificate states that Mary Kelly was a spinster even though she had been married 18 months earlier by the same priest in the same church. I cannot find a death certificate for William Elliott and his father, William the minister doesn't appear to have ever existed? The Methodist church have no record of him.
