Sophia Bently or Beakly Wisbech Cambridgeshire
« on: Saturday 25 March 17 01:42 GMT (UK) »
Hello
Does anyone have information on a Sophia Beakley or Bently from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire who was a witness to a marriage in 1824 in this town?
The other witness was a Robert Marris for whom I have found relevant data. 
However, if anyone can help would be most grateful.

Gail

There is a marriage of a Robert Marris in Wisbech in 1818 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N673-4JS

This looks like his family in 1851 although Robert  had already died . On the image Phillis is aged 57  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGCT-1WX

Robert was a Widower when he married Phillis Rogby 1818 (FreeREG has him as Morris)
Ist Marriage was likely to Mary THOMPSON 26 Oct 1814
Looks good as a Mary Marris was buried 21 Jan 1817 age 30

ROBERT Marris was buried 3 July 1835 age 52

1841 for Phillis;
Phillis Marris, 45
Jane Regry, 45
Elizabeth Clarke, 30

Just out of interest Robert was a Grocer according to the Bapt of Daug Mary Susanna Marris 21 Aug 1815 (with 1st Wife Mary)
She was buried a Mary Susan 17 Feb 1817 age 18 mths.
Then Robert Bapt 6 April 1819 with Wife Phillis a Grocer also.

1851 Census the age of Phillis is hard to make out.
She was 64 on her burial record 1858

Phillis, second wife of Robert Marris was Phillis Rogby - who would have been the sister in law to my family.  The Henry Marsden Miller marriage.  So thanks for that. 
Trying to establish the relationship that Sophia Bently/Beakly had with my family which could possibly through some light on to his life.
Jane Regry would have been younger sister of Phillis Rogby.
That is probably Sophia's baptism which means it was her maiden name.  Good finds. Thanks.
