For six years I wrote a short history
article in the monthly parish magazine,
The Pelican. One of the articles is
shown in the column opposite.
Articles can be accessed by

If anyone has any old photographs or
parish information which they would like
recorded (for present and future
generations to share) then please get in
touch with me.

ACKLINGTON HISTORY SLOT
- Acklington Marriages 1913-1914
Thank you to all those who responded to my request in
last month’s history slot for old photographs showing
Acklington events and parishioners. Below is a
photograph which was submitted by Mrs June Brown of
Warkworth showing her grandparents John (Jack) Robert
Marshall and Grace Frances Henderson who were married on
the 12th November 1914. There’s was the last of fourteen
marriages during a two year period (throughout 1913 and
1914) to take place in the church of St John The Divine.
Below is a table showing certain details of the fourteen
marriages as recorded in the marriage register. As well
as dates and names the details also include ages and
male occupations. I hope readers find the information as
interesting as I do.
