bullet  Marriage Notes:




Marriage Certificate
Thomas Walker, batchelor of "Full age" was married "After Banns" to Charlotte Jessop, Spinster of "Full Age" by Rev I. Lewis at St Nicholas Church at St Nicholas Deeping on 6th January 1851. At the time of the marriage Thomas was a "Labourer" and his father William Walker was a "Wheelwright". Charlotte's father, Charles Jessop, was a "Labourer". Both resided at St Nicholas Deeping and both signed the marriage register. The witnesses were George Walker and Maria Sharp.

It was quite common for the groom to move to the same parish as his bride to be to save the expense of posting banns in two parishes. Thomas and Charlotte emigrated to Australia with William, Isabella and George departing Plymouth on the 9th February 1851 so I suspect Thomas did move to St Nicholas Deeping before the banns were posted. The British Government assisted with the cost of passage to Australia because there was an acute labour shortage at that time.The cost of the passage to Australia was 2 to 6 pounds per person, depending on their age.

The marriage of Thomas Walker and Charlotte Jessop is recorder at Bourn in the March quarter of 1851 - Volume 14 page 367.
