    I'm looking at a very faint image on Family Search. I can't post it here because I can't crop images on my tablet :(

    I think it says:

    William Becket of the Parish of St Botolph Cambridge
    Rhoda Mann of this Parish
    Were married 29 December (surprisingly very clear :p) 1828

    Witnessed: H. Rainbird, Maria Mann, Robert Halls

    Parish is North Tuddenham

    if accessing from FS you need to go back one image ;)

    I think I'm going to need my glasses for this one... :reading:

    William Becket, single mann, of the Parish of St. Botolph, Cambridge
    Rhoda Mann, single woman, of this Parish
    Were married in this Church by Licence with Consent of... ....

    Then date and witnesses as above. although I'd go for Robert Hall rather than Halls. Hard to tell with that tail on the 'l'.

    "And he further made oath that the consent of Sarah Mann of North Tuddenham aforesaid widow the lawful mother of the said Rhoda Mann the ? hath been obtained to such marriage."

    I don't know what the word is where I've put ? I also don't understand why he would need the consent of Rhoda's mother as it says that they are both "of the age of 21 years and upwards"

    Can anyone confirm a marriage between Maria Mann and Robert Bowman, possibly in North Tuddenham, 1829 or thereabouts?

    I couldn't resist looking at the papers and found this :)
    Cambridge Independent Press January 17th 1891
    January 12 at North Elmham, at the residence of her nephews (J. and F. Nicholson) Mrs Rhoda Becket, relict of William Becket Esq., of Cambridge, sincerely lamented and respected, in the 83rd year of her age.

    Of course you couldn't resist :D

    See, I've found out who my Rhoda Beckett English was named after :):D

    And thanks to you I have a clue for a marriage, was it her sister Mary Ann or Elizabeth who married Mr Nicholson? Or was it a sister of her husband ....

    Yes, I've just found that too :)

    I'm enjoying all this repetition of names, it's reassuring that one has found the right people!!

    Oh, that Mary Ann Rainbird, witness to Maria and Robert's wedding. They were obviously all good friends.
