    It would appear that my 6X great grandfather William Perry was married at Hampton in Arden in 1726. The marriage transcript on FMP simply names his wife as Elizabeth, for a pretty good reason:

    Family search however have:

    The image on FS is identical except it is watermarked Warwickshire County Council, so where did FS get Parsons from? o_O

    Maybe they have access to the Bishops Transcripts if this is the Parish record...

    Or...

    As Elizabeth has a surname beginning with 'P' and it looks like the end if the entry has been cut off in the copying, I wonder if they can see the full version.

    Perhaps a quick email to the Warwickshire Archives could shed some light on it. :)

    Elizabeth's surname looks like it starts Pa

    What is the word before "of this Parish" at the start of the second line?
    It looks like:
    "=sons"

    Could this be a hiphen + sons?

    ie: Pa-sons?

    Although why would the "author" start writing the surname so close to the centre-fold?

    Correction.
    Looking at the original (on Ancestry), ALL the other entries are "both of this Parish".
    Although it doesn't look like "both", it IS the last entry on the page so perhaps there is damage?
    Was William "of this Parish"? Or just Elizabeth?

    Maybe the FS transcriber was just as daft as me? :oops:

    Looking at the very bottom of the page of this image, it looks like these were written on single sheets of paper that were later bound into a book.

    and ... having now read it properly (that'll teach me to start a reply before thinking it out) ... maybe it IS her hyphenated name.

    William is "of Coleshill". Only Elizabeth is "of this Parish".

    Yes, I agree with kernowmaid's hyphenated name.

    A similar occurrence has me now being very careful with F S.

    One of my Adams ancestors had two marriage entries on F S, in my case both with the same wife, in one entry they married at Gt Waltham Essex, in the other entry they married in another village I forget which now.

    I went to a fairly local LDS church which has genealogy facilities and asked them to send for copies of both entries, the result was that Gt Waltham was correct. The other entry was from a church member's "Stake" record, someone who obviously hadn't done their homework.

    Very fair comment Derek. According to FS my 5X great grandmother (coincidentally Elizabeth Parsons daughter) married at 2 different churches on consecutive days. The register entries, images of which are on FS, make it absolutely clear that Banns were read in the groom's parish church on 3 occasions, and they married the day after the third reading of the Banns in the bride's parish church.

    Me too, so Parsons it is. Can only hope I've got the right William Perry. :rolleyes:

    My two entries were for marriages on the same day, same couple, possible I suppose if they had bikes nor horses. :D
