    Rebecca married Thomas Wheatley 24/12/1792 at St Leonards, Shoreditch.
    Banns on Anc and the marriage on England Select Marriages (no image).
    On Anc they give 6 FHL film numbers for the marriage (is this Family Search?)
    On FS there is a link from the marriage to parish records with a different film number to those on Anc. I have looked at the FS images:reading: and they do not seem to bear any relationship to a marriage in Shoreditch:headbang:, they are an alphabetical list of names from the early 1700's most of which look French or Dutch.

    That aside, when Rebecca Wheatley dies she is buried in 28/9/1845 at the Wycliffe Congregational church (non conformist), age 71 so an approx yob as 1774.
    Can anyone find a baptism for her?

    All I can find is the bap of twins, Ann and Jane Lettney d/o Joseph (a caulker) and Catharine on 12/3/1764 at St. Dunstan Stepney. Rebecca does not use any of these names for her children though:(

    Thank you Wendy - I was having a bad day yesterday so how I missed it goodness only knows:oops:.

    I thought FHL was something to do with Family Search, thanks for the explanation.

    Shame there was not a Lettney witness at the marriage, so no clues as to Rebecca's beginnnings:(

    It is as you say Molly may. however, is it possible that one of those witnesses link in some where?

    I missed something for a while when transcribed as 'Thomton' instead of Thornton. It just didn't show up. :(

    Working on Wendy's thoughts that the witnesses may help in discovering who Rebecca Lettney is, Edward Wheatly is Thomas's brother.

    What is the other witnesses surname?
    John Melli ?
