Date: Saturday, 5 June 2004 7:31 PM Roy Perhaps you might like to add the following..... Frances DRAKE married Henry WORSNOP at Leeds Parish Church (St Peter's), Yorkshire, on August 21 1849. Both parties were aged 19, Henry a bachelor, occupation bricklayer, Frances a spinster. The address of both was given as Gower Street, Leeds. Groom's father: Thomas WORSNOP, bricklayer.
Bride's father: John DRAKE, engineer.
Witnesses: Robert Knaggs and Margaret Gaffney (Source: GRO marriage certificate). Henry Worsnop was my relative, not Frances Drake. Henry was the son of Thomas Worsnop, who was my gt-gt-grandfather. Henry was the brother of Charlotte Worsnop, Thomas's middle daughter of three, who was my great-grandmother. Thus Henry was my great-grand-uncle (I think that is the correct term). Thomas Worsnop is described on the certificate as a bricklayer, which may have been an occasional occupation, but actually he was a police officer in Scarborough for 30 years. Henry and Frances Worsnop (nee Drake) had three children all born in Leeds, whose details I can supply, but since they were born as Worsnops I imagine you will not want them. They were living in Scarbrough in the 1861 census. That is the extent of my DRAKE interests, I'm afraid. Best wishes Roy
