"On 1 July 1837 a civil registration system for births, marriages and deaths was introduced in England and Wales. Registration was undertaken by civil registrars who reported to the Registrar General at the General Register Office (GRO) in London, now part of the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Copies of anyone's birth, marriage or death certificates can be obtained by the public. They are vital to family historians because of the genealogical information that they include." (Mark D. Herber, Ancestral Trails, Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., 1998)

Since the original birth, marriage and death registers are not open to the public, getting access to the information on one of these certificates is done by first searching the national birth, marriage and death indexes, that have been created by the GRO for this purpose. The indexes for the three events are each divided into quarterly volumes, with the names for each quarter listed alphabetically. Once an entry in one of the indexes is found, you are then able to use that information to order of copy of a death, marriage or birth certificate from the GRO/ONS. The other information that can be obtained from the index includes:

Year
Record type (in this database this will always be "Marriage")
Quarter (March, June, September, and December)
District (each county in England and Wales was divided up into registration districts)
Volume
Page number

Note: Names were entered into the volume of the quarter in which notification of the event was received, not necessarily the quarter in which the event actually occurred.

This database is an index to the marriages only and was last updated March 2006.

The massive task of digitising and, making searchable, the names contained in the GRO indexes has been underway for a few years now. This database is made available to Ancestry.com users, courtesy of the volunteers of the FreeBMD organization. The leadership of FreeBMD have organized the permissions and tools necessary to enable thousands of volunteers to convert to electronic text, and publish online, searchable indexes to the civil registrations in England and Wales. Because of the nature of the index you will note that not all of the fields have been indexed all of the time. Until 1866, most of the indexes were handwritten, making the task of conversion sometimes difficult.

Country wide civil registration of births, marriages and deaths commenced on 1 July 1837 in England and Wales. Registration took place at local civil registrars who in turn reported to the Registrar General at the General Register Office (GRO) in London. This national index to vital records is an essential source of genealogical information for family historians.

Since the original birth, marriage and death registers are not open to the public, access to the information on one of these certificates is done by first searching the national birth, marriage and death indexes, that have been created by the GRO for this purpose. The indexes for the three events are divided into volumes by year following which entries are listed alphabetically. Once an entry in one of the indexes is found, you are then able to use that information to order of copy of a death, marriage or birth certificate from the GRO. Information that can be obtained from the birth index includes:

Full name of child

Maiden name of mother

Month and year of registration

Registration district (each county in England and Wales was divided up into registration districts; jurisdictions are organized and appear as they existed at the time the record was created)

Inferred county (the county is inferred based on what counties the registration district covered)

Volume number

Page number

Note: The district listed is the district where the event was registered, not necessarily the location where the event actually occurred.

This data collection consists of burial records from Church of England parish registers in the Diocese of Manchester, from the original registers deposited at the Manchester Libraries, Information and Archives. It includes the areas of Manchester, Salford, Bolton, Rochdale, Stretford and Trafford, Ashton-under-Lyne, Oldham, Leigh and Rossendale.

About this Collection:

Records are typically arranged in chronological order and contain the following information:

Parish
County
Name of deceased
Death or burial date
Age at time of death

Additional details such as where buried or cause of death may also be available on the original record.

Parish Records:

Parish records--primarily christenings, marriages, and burials--are the best source of vital record information before the nineteenth century. Before Civil Registration began in 1837, key events in a person's life were typically recorded by the Church rather than the State. Starting in the sixteenth century, parish records are some of the longest running records available.

Beginning in 1598, clergy were required to send copies of their parish registers to the bishop of their diocese. These copies are known as Bishop's Transcripts. Bishop's Transcripts are useful in cases where originals are unreadable or no longer exist.

In 1812, George Rose's Act called for pre-printed registers to be used for separate baptism, marriage, and burial registers as a way of standardizing records. These standardized registers are included in this collection. For earlier registers, please see the link provided below in the Related Data Collections section.

All a bit mysterious! Jesse was was a labourer - there are details of his family on a tree on Rootswebb.

After Caroline died ( ie: on the 1871 census) Jesse, Annie and Jesse jnr are in the Cranbrook Workhouse. In 1881 Jesse is lodging in Hawkhurst, Annie is in service in London. No sign of Jesse jnr. or Esther.

There is also a James Judge in the workhouse in 1871, aged 7. However, I can''t find a registration. I sent for Caroline's death cert. to see if she'd died in childbirth., but apparently not. So probably not related.

Annie married in 1886, but no trace found so far of Jesse or Esther after 1881.

HARRISON, HENRY COLDEN ANTILL (1836-1929), 'father' of Australian Rules football, was born on 16 October 1836 at Jarvisfield, the property of his uncle, Major Henry Colden Antill, near Picton, New South Wales, son of John Harrison and his wife Jane, née Howe, a relation of William Redfern, Thomas Reiby, George Howe and Horatio Wills. In 1850 the family settled in Melbourne where Harrison attended the new Diocesan Grammar School. His education was interrupted in 1852 by a visit to the goldfields, where he sympathized with the diggers' grievances. In 1853 he became an officer in the Customs Department and in 1888 transferred to the Titles Office where he became registrar.

Harrison's career as a public servant was worthy, but he was most distinguished as a sportsman. For nine years he was the champion 'pedestrian' of Victoria, defeating all comers in sprints and over hurdles and steeples. His contests with the Ballarat champion, L. L. Mount, aroused great interest. A Ballarat publican and race-horse-owner, Walter Craig, was said to have once held £10,000 to wager on Mount; after Harrison won, Craig offered to finance him in a foot-racing tour of England, but Harrison preferred his amateur status.

Melbourne's first football club was founded in 1858 by Harrison's cousin, Thomas Wills, a talented cricketer who was seeking a winter pastime. Harrison played in the first games, and was in succession captain of three football clubs. Wills had learned his football while at school at Rugby but considered that game 'unsuitable for grown men, engaged in making a livelihood'. The Victorian clubs evolved new rules which were consolidated in a code drafted by Harrison and adopted in 1866. It incorporated the distinctive features of the Australian game: no tripping or 'hacking', no 'off-side' rule, the 'mark' and carrying the ball. Harrison thus earned his honorific title as 'father of Australian Rules football'. He retired from playing in 1872 but maintained his interest in football. He became a vice-president of the Football Association formed in 1877; he was chairman in 1905 of the conference which formed the Australian National Football Council and was elected its first life member; he was an honoured guest at the jubilee dinner in 1908 at which Alfred Deakin proposed the toast to Australian football. He also maintained his physical fitness; in 1898 he rode a bicycle from Melbourne to Sydney in ten days to see the final Test match against Stoddart's English 11. In 1923 in Melbourne he published his autobiography, The Story of an Athlete.

Harrison was handsome, lean and well groomed, somewhat unbending and puritanical, upright and honourable. He died in Melbourne on 2 September 1929, predeceased by his wife Emily, a sister of Tom Wills, and survived by four daughters. His coffin carried a wreath of violets in the shape of a football. His name is commemorated by Harrison House, the headquarters of the Victorian Football League.

Here's a mystery! In 1871 Florence and Albert Hastings, grandchildren, were being looked after by Amelia Cutbush. In 1861 Florence Hastings was with her mother Ellen Hastings in Croydon.

Ellen completely fits the profile for Ellen Cutbush, except that I can't find a marriage to Mr Hastings, and there is no husband at home in 1861.

Ellen married ( again ?) in 1865, as Ellen Cutbush. She and John Trestain left Kent and moved all over the country. In 1871 they were in Walsall, in 1881 in Somerset.

In 1881 an Albert Henry Trestain b. 1863 Hythe was in Walsall working as a Journeyman Confectioner the trade of his step-father. In 1891 he was in London, a Police Constable.

In 1879 a Florence Trestain b. 1860 died in Walsall, Staffs.

So it seems the children went to Staffordshire with Ellen and John, after 1871, using the name Trestain, although they had both been registered Hastings.

And who was their father ? Certificate sent for.
