Nancy

Here is a starting point for you. Your grandmother's marriage certificate, it should have the bride and groom's ages, addresses, and father's names and occupations. Note the marriage year. Figure the wife's age about 20 years old plus or minus 5 to get birth year. Check the spelling of "Priscilla". The certificate should have John's occupation.

No matching records were found for MARGERISON and DEWHURST in the following years:
1850, 1851, 1852, 1853, 1854, 1855, 1856, 1857, 1858, 1859, 1860, 1861, 1862, 1863, 1864, 1865, 1866, 1867, 1868, 1869, 1870, 1871, 1872, 1873, 1874, 1875, 1876, 1877, 1878, 1879, 1880, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1884, 1885, 1886, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1898, 1899, 1900, 1901, 1902, 1903, 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1933, 1934, 1935

Using the names and dates given the closest listing for a John and a Charlotte and a Priscilla from Preston, all have a mother's maiden name of Tyrell, alternately spelled Terrell, and Tyrell. There were other brothers and sisters as well. John 1853. Charles 1854, Alfred 1855, Charlotte 1858, and Pricilla 1860. Going backwards, John Dewhurst married a Pricilla Tyrell in 1851. Maybe this is a start.
