Note on Marriage

Another marriage is also lisetd on Jul-Aug-Sep 1898 which could be William marrying for the 2nd time. Vol 3a Page 1101 [Jon Axtell]

Note on Husband: William AXTELL

NOTES: Might have had a son called William Axtell born in 1879. 1901 Census has one born in Redbourn.

 

OCCUPATION: County council roadworker according to Margaret Sylvester (nee Canham).

Note on Wife: Ann DRAPER

Birth registers has Ann Draper Q1 1852 as the most likely match since St Albans was the registration district which covers Redbourn. However, the marriage entry in the parish reigster has her age in 1878 as 20 which gives a birth year of 1858. Needs checking, especially now that the marriage entry shows a James Draper as Ann's father. [Jon Axtell]

 

The 1881 census shows a James Draper living in Redbourn, aged 47 with wife Mary aged 43. Children are listed as Sarah (22), Emily (15), Daniel (13), and Joseph (6). An Ann is not listed, however Ann could be working elsewhere as a servant. Also, the marriage entry shows a Sarah Draper listed as a witness. Still need to check out birth mismatch with marriage.
