The marriage recordof Hannah and John tells us:

Marriages solemnized in the Parish of Almondbury (All Hallows), Yorkshire 29 February 1836:

John Leak of Holmfirth, son of Edmund Leak a clothier and his wife Sarah, baptized 31 December 1815 at Holy Trinity.

Hannah Bradberry of Holmfirth.

in the presence of John Leake and Joseph(?)  Bradbury.

A search at Ancestry on Hannah Bradbury tells us that

1) a Hannah Bradbury was baptized - born to James Bradbury and Ann Whitely - 26 March 1815  at Holmfirth. Source: Family History Library/FHL Film Number: 990703.

2) a Hannah Bradbury was born 4 January 1816 (baptized 27 January) at Holmfirth at a non-Conformist and non Parochial church (non-Anglican) to Job and Hannah Bradbury of Newfield in the township of Austonley and Parish of Almondbury.

THe UK 1841 Census indicates that #2 Hannah Bradbury (of Austonley, Almondbury, Yorkshire) is unmarried in 1841 and living with her mother Hannah and siblings.

I suspect your Hannah is #1. (She also happens to have a brother Joseph who was born in 1813 ). The witness at the wedding.

James Bradbury was born about 1795 at Holmfirth. He married Ann Whitely 10 May 1813. I think Hannah's siblings are Joseph, James, Ann, and Jonas...perhaps more.


Hope this helps a bit,

The post by Ann Carmel is indeed correct

The William Stewart does indeed have the very same family as Immigrants to Australia


William Stewart Leake that was born on the ''William Stewart'' is named on his fathers probate record in Geelong Victoria


Thanks, Eric!
