- Marriage: Ruth Whitelock on 9 Jun 1795 in Hudswell, Yorkshire, England 262
Great, great, great grandfather of Richard Perry Radcliffe. It was said in the family that they came from Scotland earlier, changing their name to Greathead from the celtic Caenmore.
Note to self: There was a Thomas Greathead, age 55 in 8-1854 (b. 1799) who was written about in the London Express on 8-7-1854 (and the Morning Chronicle 8-9-1854) for having helped himself to $ belonging to a principal business creditor, Mr. Webb. He'd been a pillar of the community prior to having been caught -- he'd been church warden, overseer, guardian, surveyor of highways, and was registrar of deaths, births, and marriages for the Lambeth district when he was caught. He owned a cheese shop at 58 Mount Street, Lambeth. He was found guilty but because he had previously been a man of good character, they gave him a sentence of common jail for one month. The same Thomas G was given a bad check and it was written about in the Morning Chronicle 9-19-1851. The check was for some bacon and the check was passed to Thomas at his cheese shop, 58 Mount St., Lambeth.
Thomas married Ruth Whitelock, daughter of Peter Whitelock and Sarah Whitelock, on 9 Jun 1795 in Hudswell, Yorkshire, England.262
In the "England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index: 1837-1915," there is a record of the marriage of Ruth Whitelock listed. The marriage was in the district of Devizes in Wiltshire parish in England. I don't know if this is she because it doesn't list who she married.
