Where is their marriage record?
« on: Tuesday 14 March 17 19:17 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I have a Brown family living in Much Marcle in the 1840s-50's. I've found lots out about them including their births and deaths and those of their children -  but no marriage record for them either in Much Marcle, Yatton or Little Dewchurch.

William Brown, born 1818 in Yatton and his wife Hannah Brown born in 1820 in Little Dewchurch.  Hannah was a Cobburn before she married and I can find her family living in Little Dewchurch.  I can find their children's births and christenings in Much Marcle/Yatton.  First child, Eliza was born in 1849(my great great grandmother). 

I'd love to find their marriage record or perhaps they weren't married but she took his name?😶

Thank you in advance for any help with this!

Dear Both

Sometimes you have to look outside of the box!  I just assumed a marriage in Much Marcle or Little Dewchurch.  I should know by now that in this game you never assume anything!

Thank you so much as I've now found out the name of their father's too!  One very happy lady!

Thank you once again for taking the time to help me😁😁
