mary ann freeman and nathaniel Weaver (General)

I have found on ancestry 3 marriage banns 31 Oct 1841, 7 Nov 1841 and 14 Nov 1841 for Mary Ann Freeman and Nathaniel Weaver at Gloucester St John the Baptist.
However there was never a marriage. On 16 April 1842 Mary Ann Freeman gave birth to a son Nathaniel Weaver Freeman. But his birth and baptism records state Mary was a single mother. What happened to Nathaniel Weaver the father - I cannot find a death for him around 1841/1842

James WEAVER the father is on the 1851 census at Boddington, Gloucestershire - and his Will in 1852 is listed.

It would seem James WEAVER and Rosanna - were non-conformists

sorry this is a bit late, but I just found this enquiry was covered on a prior thread. I'm ashamed to admit I only found it while doing a general internet search of "Nathaniel Weaver 1884" ...

Btw the Death Record you found on the Ancestry trees slightly disagrees with that on FreeBMD;

Surname First name(s) Age District Vol Page
Deaths Mar 1884 (>99%)
Weaver Nathaniel 58 Malling 2a 364
