    I'm rather mystified as to where to go to from here

    Hannah Partridge married Samuel Smith in 1803 in St Martin in the Fields
    (I have a date of 14 Feb by license with a register as a source, but I also put 4th March, but without a source, I don't know what I did there)

    She is of St James Westminster, also known as St James Piccadilly or St James in the Fields. He is of that parish (but if he's the right one, he was of St Albans)

    Hannah Smith died in 1831, born 1780

    I can't find any Hannah Partridge born in St James. There's an Ann born 1780, but she was born near Aldgate
    There's an Ann Catherine born St James 1773 on FMP, but she seems to have died a spinster

    I've run out of ideas, where can I look now?

    Have you looked in Bedfordshire? We have a Partridge in the distant past who hailed from there.

    The marriage register shows that Hannah was a widow and so Partridge wasn't her birth name. We need to find another marriage.

    Wow, where did you find that?
    That may throw a spanner in the works. Samuel and Hannah's son's middle name was Partridge. That lead me to think her maiden name was probably Partridge. I've always wondered why Samuel said he was from St Martin, when he wasn't. Unless Mr Partridge was important in the family anyway, which may still be possible

    The marriage register is on FMP's Westminster collection. I don't think there's any problem with Samuel being of St Martin in the Fields parish - it just means he lived in that parish when he married; it doesn't mean he was born there. The parishes of St James and St Martin are bang next door to each other (Hay Market is the boundary line) so they probably lived fairly close to each other anyway.

    I can't seem to find this. What was his name and date of baptism?

    It's OK - I've found your previous post about this.
