General Notes: Husband - George Mowbray

On the wedding transcript for George and Hannah, it states that George is of" Blyth, Ntt" and the marriage was by licence; the 1841 census cites him being born in Lincolnshire, the 1851 cites him being born in Haxey whereas the 1861 cites his place of birth as Yorkshire NK (= Not Known), his wife Hannah is cited as being born in Haxey, Lincolnshire on the same census.Another consideration is that in 1851, George's son William is farm servant to James Mowbray (b c1799 Finningley, Nottinghamshire) in Cantley, Yorkshire, a coincidence?[JDB]
