I am trying to prove for certain who Maria's parents are and am wondering if anyone will have better luck than I finding a copy of her marriage to Thomas Elley on Dec, 17, 1821 in Horncastle. I can see a transcript but not an original to get the real information. From my DNA that I match with another person and a lot of searching I believe she is the daughter of Joseph and Ann Taylor, baptized in June 22 1800 in Wilksby. The other person has an ancestor , William Taylor, baptized in 1789 in Wilksby, son of Joseph and Ana Taylor. In census William states his place of birth as Bardney which is 26 miles or was it kms..( can't remember which ..sorry! ) from Wilksby. The only census for in England for Maria is the 1841 and it just says born in this county. Thanks to anyone who is luckier than me.
