Parker Family Connections in Bradford

This is the latest update (June 2009) on the results of researching my possible Parker family relatives in the Bradford area of Yorkshire.

Searching for Townsley and Sheeky relatives was not so bad but searching for Parker connections has proved to be much harder. However I have found the following entries for relatives in the Parker family and, through them, links to the Jennison, Armison and Knighton families from Nottinghamshire as well as possible Parker origins in Suffolk. There are also thought to be links to the Bendig family from Berlin and the Tane family from Ireland as well as the Dossett and Houlbrook families through later marriages.

1881 Census Returns Bradford

Isaac Parker and his family were living at 29 Wilfried Street. The full list of occupants, as recorded on 3 April 1881 is;

According to the information I already have from my mother and the family birth / marriage / death certificates, this should be the family containing my great grandfather and great, great grandfather. Because Isaac was already a widower in 1881, I had no clue as to the name of my great, great grandmother.

If I am right then, the Sarah A on the census is the same Sarah Ann who was a witness to the marriage of John William and Margaret Jennison on 26/10/1884; even though she was probably no more than 20 at the time. Margaret came from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire and also appears in the 1881 Census at 8 Lancaster Street, Bowling as -

So again we have a widowed parent and need to search further for clues.

1891 Census Returns Bradford

John William Parker, son of Isaac, and his family were living at 81 Bolling Street. The full list of occupants, as recorded on 5 April 1891 is;

It seems that John William and Margaret had staying with them - Margaret’s un-married sister and another family that included either another sister/relative or a friend, Alice, from Eastwood. The surname was hard to read but did prove to be Bendig (see below) and the subsequent marriage record showed that this was Alice Maud Armison. The presence of Fanny here as sister-in-law confirms the links with Robert Armiston (1856) that start from the 1861 Census; since she was staying with his family at Hucknall under Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire in 1881.

Isaac (1826) may have died before this census but certainly some more of the children survived; since Isaac (1872) is known to have married a Frances and had at least two children - James and Agnes. Also the Jennison family should still be in the Bradford area. More searches of the 1891 Census are clearly needed.

But in the same census the following related entry was fouund at 9 Carnation Street, Bradford Moor.

1871 Census Returns Bradford

Some time later, I was able to search the 1871 Census for Isaac Parker. Unfortunately Wilfried Street was not in the index and so I had to search by name through 5 or 6 reels of microfilm - to find at 5 Back Spinkwell Terrace, Bolton Road, East Bradford:

This provided the name, age and place of birth for Isaac's wife. It also gave a different age and place of birth for Isaac - see Parker Families in Suffolk

1861 Census Returns Nottinghamshire

Following the Jennison line in the 1861 Census found Christopher and Ann at 130 Church Street, Eastwood with three children from Ann's previous Armiston marriage - Mary (1851), Ann (1854) and Robert (1856). A subsequent check through the 1881 Census found that by then Robert had married a Mary and was living in Hucknall under Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire. Despite this success it has not been possible to find the birth references for any of these three children nor the marriage reference for Ann. Even searches of the 1851 Census have failed to find the couple - but it is thought that a Robert Armiston (age 24 and working as a servant in Sandiacre, Nottinghamshire in 1851) is Ann's elusive first husband.

Birth Certificates

My first attempt at getting the birth certificate for John William was not a success. The Bradford Register Office sent me the details of another John William born around the same date in Sun Street, Shipley. It was not until October that I managed to find another possible entry while searching in the Family Records Centre, London. This was the right one and gave me the maiden name of Isaac's wife - Catherine Cosgrove.

If this research is correct it means that this branch of the family tree came to Bradford in the 1850's along with millions of others who moved to find work in the booming cities of the Industrial Revolution.

Looking for the certificate for Margaret Jennison was more successful and provided the details needed to follow the Jennison line further. Her parents were Christopher and Ann (nee Knighton) - the name note of "late" Armiston indicated that Ann had been married before.

Marriage Certificates

A trip the Family Records Centre in London resulted in a busy day that only covered part of the long list of relatives I was searching for. However I did find an entry for the marriage of Isaac Parker and Catherine Cosgrove. The main details on it were -

23 November 1861 at Parish Church, Bradford

Isaac Parker (age 35, bachelor, labourer, father: David Parker)

Catherine Cosgrove (age 20, spinster, spinner, father: Patrick Cosgrove)

Witnesses: William Holmes, Christopher Gibson

Unfortunately the addresses of the bride and groom are not given but some names for the earlier generation of ancestors are confirmed.

Parish Records

Checking through the records on the Family Search web site was productive. There was a "family tree" entry for Christopher Jennison and Ann Knighton which established a link back to earlier generations (even though the earlier researcher had not picked up Ann's first marriage). There was also a parish register entry for Ann which provided a way of confirming her parents - Sampson and Elizabeth Knighton - and opened up an extensive Knighton family tree of several hundred individuals from Ilkeston, Derbyshire and Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. This family requires a page of its own!

1914-18 War

There should be a number of family entries recorded in the Bradford Roll of Honour for being in military service during the Great War. The one found, so far, is that for Robert Parker, of 140 Caledonia Street, Bradford, who served in the Duke of Wellington's Regiment from October 1916 to until his death in May 1917. However, even from the limited work done so far, it seems that the Roll of Honour is far from complete - missing some known family members and those with the family surnames that appeared in press cuttings from the time.

Despite various approaches to the problem there has been no luck in finding any likely David Parker or the birth of Isaac (around 1826) in the Bedingfield area of Suffolk.
