Ousden marriage look up
« on: Thursday 01 March 12 20:15 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for the details of the marriage of Charles Rivers and Rebecca Butcher in 1769 and also if they had any children in Ousden. Thank you.

Thanks I had missed that  :-[ I am hoping to find out if Charles Rivers was of the parish when he married.

Hi

Of this parish (OTP) - does not necessarily mean they were both born in that parish - just that they satisfied the short residential qualifying time required to enable them to marry there (approx 3wks)

Taken from Ousden parish register.

Charles Rivers singleman OTP and Rebekah Butcher singlewoman OTP were married by banns 16th October 1769.
Both signed X
In presence of Marmaduke Constable and Henry Abbott (both signed).
Banns read 24 Sept, 1 Oct, 8 Oct
Henry Abbott seemed to witness most marriages around this time

I could not see any baptims at Ousden in the few years following the marriage.

Many thanks for looking in the register for me, much appreciated and for confirming no baptisms, which is what I was hoping as it ties up a loose end. Thanks again  :)
