In Response To: Wilkinson Family ()

John, do you have a copy of the 1887 marriage certificate of Solomon Wilkinson and Margaret Corkill nee Dailey ? The image doesn’t appear to be available online. The index shows that Solomon’s father was James Wilkinson, but what was James’s occupation ? And who were the witnesses ?

I looked at the England censuses for 1841 to 1881 (searching for a Wilkinson family with a father James and a son Solomon), and also at the births in the GRO site. Nothing obvious has emerged.

I’ve copied the IOM census listings below for all the Wilkinsons, between 1861 and 1901. There’s no Solomon prior to 1891. Apart from Solomon’s family in 1891, there are no Wilkinsons in Lezayre. I suspect that Solomon met widow Margaret in Liverpool and moved to the IOM because Margaret was Manx.

The information on Solomon and Margaret’s marriage certificate might unlock the mystery of Solomon’s identity.
