marriage of Richard Overfield 1823 Willey completed
« on: Sunday 27 April 14 22:28 BST (UK) »
Hi
I would be most grateful if someone could look up the marriage of Richard Overfield to Ann ? that occurred in Willey near Bridgnorth in 1823- I believe before September of that year. Would love to know Ann's maiden name  :)

Thank you very much in advance

Hi Claire

Thanks so much! That was fast! :)
Didn't realise he was a widower even though he was 36 when he married. Richard had to marry Ann because she became pregnant but he killed the child in late 1823 and was hung in 1824.
Wonder who the first wife was?

regards

Hi again

That looks very likely as there are no other Richard Overfields who were old enough to marry (it's a remarkably unusual name in Shropshire) Thanks again-It's my lucky night ;D

Best Wishes

Just read the newspaper reports, what an awful thing to do.

Anyway, glad to help.
