Higginbottom, Vinden, Carter, Cooper
On 25th November 1876 my Great Grandfather Arnold Higginbottom married Julia Vinden at St Marys Church, Lambeth. Three years earlier in 1873 ArnoldÕs younger sister Mary Higginbottom had married Julia's elder brother John Hatton Vinden, again the marriage taking place in Lambeth. Arnold and Mary were both born in Manchester.

The parents of John and Julia Vinden were John Vinden and Jane Prior, who married at the Parish Church, Earls Court on 12th February 1849. The marriage certificate identifies John's father as William Vinden, occupation brick maker. John's occupation is shown as plasterer. John and Jane produced three children that I identified fairly early in my research; Jane born 4th November 1849, John Hatton born 4th April 1851and Julia born around 1857 to 1859. I have never been able to trace Julia's birth and I have never found John and Jane in any census.

John Hatton Vinden was born two days after the 1851 census was taken and the address given on the birth certificate is 31 Berkeley Street, Lambeth. But the entry in the census for that date shows the house occupied by John Cooper, aged 29, a plasterer born in Shepperton, Middlesex; his wife Jane age 28 and born Fulham, Middlesex; and daughter Jane.
