Family Group Information
|Marriage|| 17 February 1846|
Manchester, Lancashire, England
JOHN CARR was born in Yorkshire, England, in the year 1814. His first wife died six weeks after their marriage. MARY JAGGER wrote a letter of condolence, and this blossomed into a romance. They were married at the Coll and Parish Church in the Parish of Manchester, in the County of Lancaster, England, on 17th February, 1846. John Carr was a widower and Mary Jagger a spinster. The bridegroom lived at Newtown, and the bride at Duke Street, Hulme, before marriage. Best man was James Symons, and bridesmaid Amelia Brown. The marriage was solemnised according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Established Church, after Banns. The Minister was the Rev. W. Wilson. John Carr's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Carr, were farmers, and Mary Jagger's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jabez Jagger, were linen drapers. MARY JAGGER was born in Liverpool, England, in 1818. She was of French descent (name originally spelt Jager). Her grandparents were silk merchants in France. In her youth she travelled often by pleasure boat, with her mother, on the Rhone and Rhine Rivers. She had received a liberal education in literature, music and art. Later in life, this proved of inestimable value, as she educated her children, including musical tuition, in the home, at Frankston, Victoria, Australia. Mary Carr (Jagger) died at Mornington Park, Frankston, Shire of Mornington, on August 20, 1882. She was buried by the Rev. David Flockart, who some 12 months later was to preside at the wedding of her daughter, Elizabeth, with Oliver Henry Potts.
