St Mary's, Luton Marriage Look Up Request
« on: Monday 26 October 15 07:53 GMT (UK) »
I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with a look-up, if anyone is going to the Bedfordshire Archives in the nearish future, would you please look up the marriage of Robert Ayres (spelt Eyres) and Sarah Crew which took place in St Mary's, Luton on 4th October 1779 according to FamilySearch?  I would be interested to know the parishes they originated from (I suspect Sarah may have come from Hertfordshire as her daughter returns to Hertfordshire and marries a Crew), and any witnesses.

Many thanks in advance if anyone can help :)

The marriage entry from the register has both parties being of this parish and having no status.
Witnesses were Matthew Prudden, Eliz Prudden & James Jackson.

On subsequent baptisms & burial of their children it says they were from Crawley Green
