Sellens Marriages in Ticehurst
« on: Monday 27 August 07 03:49 BST (UK) »
Hi,
This may not be that easy, but has anybody come across reference to the following marriages in parish records in the Salehurst area:

Thomas Sellens and Mary Bright (Mar Q 1849 in Ticehurst District)
Sarah Sellens and William Rummery (Dec Q 1872 in Ticehurst District)

The reason that I ask is that the BVRI (vol 2) lists the marraiges as being

Thomas Sellens and Mary Bright (1 Feb 1849 in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire)
Sarah Sellens and William Rummery (23 Oct 1872 in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire)

The BVRI cites a FHL film 1040810

It looks like there is an error in the BVRI.  I have tried to search the LDS website and can't find any entries for this film.

Can anybody help confirm that this branch of the Sellens family did get married in Sussex and didn't go to Herts to get married.

Regards

Mark

Is it possible that the banns were read in Hertfordshire and mistakenly indexed as the actual marriage?     If the GR0 index has the marriages in Ticehurst then that must be where they took place.

Good thought Andrea!

Do the spouses ie William and Mary come from Herts?
