Hi Mike,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'd seen the marriage of 1833, and although there is a link with the Boulter family (one of Thomas's sister also married a Boulter) I'd discounted it for a couple of reasons, and maybe you can enlighten me?

1. Why did Maria and Thomas not marry until 1833, by which time they had had 5 children. Wasn't this very unusual?
2. Why marry 9-10 miles away from where they lived, and with them both said to be "of this parish", when all the children are born in the Brand Gren, Upleadon area?

Thanks also for reminding me that I can search on the GRO site. For some bizarre reason I've just used them in the past to order my certificates!
