Help needed! What is the word just before "of this Parish" ?
« on: Friday 17 February 17 15:12 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to work out what the word just before "of this parish" for the groom in this marriage record is.

I have worked out that the image says Joseph Wade (then the word I can't read) "of this parish" widower  and Martha Grubb of this parish spinster were married in this church by banns  this twenty first day of November 1831

On almost all the other marriage records for this parish at this time there does not seem to be a word written before "of this parish" so I am wondering if this groom had a prominent role in the parish or maybe some unusual occupation.

Any help gratefully received.

Chris

I think it may be Sojourner of this parish.

Sojourner = Temporary resident
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

Hi Geoff-E,

Thanks, that makes sense as I do know that Joseph Wade was not originally from this parish.

Thank you again Chris ... trying to read who the Wittnesses might be in case it's a clue?  My only other option to see if I can work out who Jospeh Wade was and where he was from is to perhaps get some research from Kew I'm told ... as he died in military service I'm told his records were likely destroyed and the only other chance is via muster rolls?

So many mysteries :-)
