The marriage cert. records her age as 18 yrs & Samuel's as 'full'. Neither could write. He is recorded as a widower & records his father as, Samuel Kirkman 'In Mill'.
* Their last three children are a bit of a mystery as I believe they were all born after Samuel's death.
Joseph was later adopted to Henry & Grace Richardson. His full name may be Charles Joseph.
The family was living at 22 Dale St., Little Bolton, Lancashire in the 1871 census.
