Marriages at Churchdown around 1800 (General)

Thanks again for your help.

A mixture of stupidity and ignorance on my part meant not thinking through that a marriage licence might have extra information attached to it and that a record would have been kept.

In the case of John and Sarah, I believe they are my gggG-parents. They went to live at Berry Hill/ Five Acres and their first child was born approx 3 months after they were married.

I can't say for sure if Sarah Jordan was born in Churchdown or not, but my feeling is it's more likely she was from the Bicknor/Newland area originally. Possibly her family moved to Churchdown, or perhaps she got a job as a maid there.

Incidentally, one of John and Sarah's children was called Mary Anne. She married a George Morgan, and they emigrated to Canada. That is touched on in another thread on this site.

All the best Nick

PS I may delve around further back into the 17th C but for now I'm testing the information I have to see if it stands up to scrutiny or not.
