Hi Mo
Hope you have better luck with your Smiths than I have had with mine!

Apologies, the Joshusa Smith and Mary Addy marriage is online on fmp after all. It was at Wentworth, 31 Dec 1849. My only excuse is that the website was playing up big time yesterday! If you want the details let me know.
If Joshua moved straight from Harworth to Wath upon Dearne, then I can't see a burial of Ann in the latter.

Many thanks Ian. Looks like the Smith family were already gravitating towards the Nottinghamshire border, according to the 1830 baptism. Plus it confirms the Thomas Smith (born Tickhill) I've located in census records for the Hoyland area (1861-1881).

Hi
There are some transcriptions of Wath upon Dearne parish registers on Genuki.
Interesting that in the census there is a Joseph Smith, born Hemingfield, a carpenter/joiner.
Cannot say for sure that these are the parents, but -
Burial, Darfield, 3 March 1814, John Smith, age 55. Abode Hemingfield.
Seems to have left a will. But a William Smith of Hemingfield is the executor named in the death duty indexes.
Burial, Darfield, 15 March 1837, Elizabeth Smith, age 77. Abode Hemingfield.
Without meaning to be flippant it's a pity she didn't last until July!

If by some happy chance they spent all their time in Hemingfield/Darfield, then there is a marriage in Wath, 24th October 1782, John Smith, of Darfield + Elizabeth Hardy.
There are some baptisms in Darfield, father John Smith, who was living in Hemingfield. The mother was not named. The first I could see after that marriage was Wm in 1785?
I think on the baptism of Edward in 1788 it says son of John Smith jun?
But all very speculative!

Many thanks Ian for these latest search results. Wonderful to see all those Wath upon Dearne parish registers on Genuki! Those will certainly keep me busy for a while.

The 1851 census with Joseph Smith looks very interesting. I will look into him, as well. Could be a brother of John Smith. The burial and birth records you also found look very promising indeed. :D
