James Taylor

#18039, b. about 1819
Last Edited=1 Jan 2016
     James Taylor was born about 1819 A possible birth for him is on 8 November 1819 to James Taylor and Ann Dodds in Robinson Lane-Nc and Saint Georges-Nc, Sunderland, Durham and a possible baptism appears on 21 January 1821 in Darlington with parents of John and Ann.1 He was the son of John Taylor. He married Sarah Brown, daughter of Peter Brown and Isabella Baker, on 18 December 1847 in Stanhope, Durham, England, The ceremony was witnessed by Thomas Hall (who was listed as a Parish Clerk in 1851 census) and Margaret Sanderson. James was described as 28 and a labourer and gave his address as Crawleysides. Sarah was aged 21 and from Stanhope. I think she was not 21 only 19.2 It would appear that Sarah returned home to her parents at least by the 1851 census where she is recorded as single. In 1851 she married William Greathead declaring herself a spinster. However when her second child was born in 1855, seven years after the marriage to James she declared that she had been married previously. Was James declared dead then? or maybe she declared him dead. Had he committed some offence and perhaps been placed in prison or transported after their marriage? Had he disappeared, plenty of gold fever in Australia. Maybe he was "paid off" Will we ever know the truth?3
