    Spent the morning in a dark room looking at marriage records and found this which could explain why I have failed to find a marriage

    Ooh! :eek:

    I wonder how come the certificate was issued and signed (marked with an x) - that is usually after the marriage vows have been exchanged and all solemnised..... :reading:

    I also have one of those marriages forbidden by the mother. Banns on 21,28 Nov. & 5 Dec. 1852 when he was 18/19. but the couple made it to the altar in 1853.
    Another couple's marriage is duly written up then crossed through stating they never showed up. Well not there anyway. They left for Australia a few years [& children] later in 1836.

    I was just about to say the same thing. Do you think she dragged him home by his ear?

    Explains the 'too young' age in 1868, I wonder why 19 was acceptable, my relly was also 18 & then married at 19. I would have thought 20/21, but have forgotten the year ages acceptable changed.

    Congrats to the 'happy couple'. At least they kept to their original partner, unlike some we've recently heard about :D
    so to bed for our older readers in this house. G'night all.
