    I am researching Dorcas Wyatt’s family, who was born about 1848 who is Rowland’s sister, who was born about 1841.

    On Dorcas marriage certificate it refers to the father as Samuel, but I cannot find him on the census. Her brother’s name was Samuel so he could have given her away.

    I presume that her father died between 1847-1851, which was well before her marriage in 1868. I need another source to confirm that her father’s name is Samuel.

    Dorcas Wyatt married Emanuel Albert cousins on Boxing Day 1868 at Dursley Tabernacle in Gloucestershire. They lived at Hungerhill in Dursley and had children called Alice, Edith, Florence and George. The family moved to Stapleford in Nottinghamshire and had Sarah. The family then moved to South Kirkby in Yorkshire and had more children called Fred, Ethelbert Cousins. They moved to South Elmsall also in Yorkshire where they had one more child called Victor. Emanuel
    worked on the railways eventually becoming the stationmaster at Hemsworth. Their daughter Sarah married a local hairdresser called John Lee in 1900. They lived with John’s brother Charles at Market Street in Hemsworth. They had children Charles (my Granddad), Joe, Robert, Cynthia, Aileen, George, Ernest
