Margaret A. Leatherbarrow
1892 - 28th Apr 1960
Married Harry Leatherbarrow
Birth of son Sammy Leatherbarrow
25th Sep 1958
Death of Harry Leatherbarrow in Little Crosby.
28th Apr 1960
Died in Little Crosby.
Birth: Jun 1892, Leatherbarrow, Margaret, W. Derby 8b 497
Marriage: Sep 1918, Leatherbarrow, Henry, m. Leatherbarrow, W. Derby 8b 846
Marriage: Sep 1918, Leatherbarrow, Margaret A, m. Leatherbarrow, W. Derby 8b 846
Inscription taken from grave headstone at St Mary's Little Crosby:
"Pray for the soul of Henry Leatherbarrow who died 25th September 1958 aged 62 years
Our lady of Fatima pray for him
also Margaret, nee Leatherbarrow beloved wife of the above who died 28th April 1960 aged 67 years
also their son Henry Leatherbarrow (Sammy) beloved husband of Catherine who died 23rd August 1970 aged 51 years"
Without obtaining the marriage certificate, we cannot say precisely who Margaret's parents are.
Based on the age on the tombstone, Margaret's birth should be between 29th April 1872 and 28th April 1873.
In freeBMD there is one entry which fits with this:
Birth: Jun 1892, Leatherbarrow, Margaret, W. Derby 8b 497
Given this birth date, Margaret would be 26 when she marrried.
In freeBMD there are two other entries which do not fit with the date of death but could conceivably be this Margaret. One is for the sister of her husband Harry, and can be discounted. (There is no rumour of any sort within the family to suggest any irregularity in the marriage). The entries are:
Birth: Jun 1891, Leatherbarrow, Margaret, W. Derby 8b 502
Birth: Jun 1891, Leatherbarrow, Margaret, W. Derby 8b 499
Another entry was found in FindMyPast:
Birth: Mar 1891, Leatherbarrow, Maggie Ann, Ormskirk 8b 810
There are no entries for a birth or christening in IGI.
There are two 1901 census entries that correspond to an 1892 birth date:
