Have been fighting a brick wall for ages with my Essex Marriage line.

Try putting 'Marriage' into a search engine.  ;D

A recent discovery of a will, Francis Marriage 1702 shows the family were Quakers. I've never researched them before, so does anyone know how I can go about it, please?

 Visit to TNA would not be easy for me.

Thanks

Hello Geoff

I have a large book Biographical Dictionary of British Quakers in Commerce and Industry 1775 - 1920

Thirteen Marriage Quakers are mentioned spanning 1762 to 1948 and what seems to listed as sources in the majority are:-

H. M. Knight, A Tabular Version of a Genealogical Chart of the Marriage Family (1996)

 ---------

Also B. Williams, Quakers in Reigate (1980) for Charles Marriage (1812 - 1880)

E. Marriage & Son, Annals of One Hundred Years of Flour Milling [1940] for Edward Marriage (1814 - 1903)

J. Smith, Supplement to 'A Descriptive Catalogue of Friends Books' (1893), 243-4 for Francis Marriage (1809 - 1878)

K. Hall and C. Hall, Sidcot School Register ... 1808 - 1998 (2001), 117; Bootham School Register (1935), 256, for Sampson Percival Marriage (1880 - 1971)

B. Williams, Quakers in Reigate (1980); Bootham School Register (1935), 256 for Thomas Sydney Marriage (1853 - 1948)

Wilson Marriage (1842 - 1932) is mentioned in several of the above and The Friend (1932) xc.682; Minute of the Colchester MM [Monthly Meeting], in London YM [Yearly Meeting], (1933), 203-4

 ----------

According to 622203, Cpl. J. Dowdall, on the night of 12th/13th June 1940 an aircraft struck the premises of Marriage & Sons Flour Mill and crashed. Another report by 928 [Balloon] Squadron RAF Felixstowe refers to a British aircraft and East Anglia Flour Mills. The aircraft was a Hampden.
