Hannah BARNETT was baptised at Filey St Oswald’s and in her fourth decade, as a single woman, she married 45-year-old widower Thomas Hyde SIMPSON there. Thomas was a publican from New Wortley, Leeds, the son of a locomotive engineer. Twenty years later, Thomas had retired and the couple lived in Beeston Hill, Hunslet. Hannah was widowed on Christmas Eve 1919.
Sometimes, couples marry twice within a few days, usually in their home parishes if miles apart. So, David SHIELDS may have married Rosanna FOX on 10 September 1882 in Sewerby with Marton, as indicated on their Shared Tree pedigree, and again two days later at Filey St Oswald’s. (Their two children were born in Sewerby cum Marton.)
Note Rosanna’s signature in the marriage register.

Hannah Maria was the eldest daughter of John LAWSON, a flax and tow machine maker. On 16 September 1858, she married solicitor John LATIMER at All Saints, Church, Leeds. They had a son and four daughters, all born in Leeds. In 1896, on the anniversary of her parent’s marriage, youngest daughter Rose Audrey married Reginald William SHARP at Filey St Oswald’s. Hannah Maria signed the register as a witness.
She died four years later and a cross in the churchyard remembers her – and her daughter Rose.
