A couple of Yorkshire Hamers

Just discovered a couple of marriages in the York area from the late 18th century, as follows:

JOHN HAMER = ANN WARDON married at St. Crux Church, 31st Oct 1772
(St Crux church no longer exists)

ABRAHAM HAMER = MARY STOTT m Aug 25th 1750 at Holy trinity, Goodramgate.
(This church still exists - see below)

Holy Trinity Goodramgate has the air of a hidden treasure. It stands in a small, secluded, leafy churchyard, with the Minster towering behind, tucked away behind Goodramgate - one of York’s busiest shopping streets. To visit, you pass through an 18th-century archway tacked on to buildings that served as artisans’ workshops in the 14th century. - See more at:
