Sutton, Suffolk Marriage Look up.
« on: Monday 10 April 17 16:54 BST (UK) »
Hi, Does anyone have access to Sutton marriage registers? I am looking for a marriage from September 1771 of a William Waller and Mary Edwards. Can anyone help?

Many thanks

Sue.

Hi,

Many thanks for that information. I have just discovered Mary Edwards nee Kerridge marriage to William Waller through a will at the Suffolk Archives I took a chance on and am trying to find out as much information about him as possible. Mary and Edward Edwards were my 5X great grandparents. He died in 1767 and she in 1773 leaving two young children, Mary B 1764 and Burwell B 1766 in the care of William Waller who I understand was a big landowner around Sutton.
He was the one who married Mary Neale in 1758. Is it possible you could look to see if they had children and when she died?

I would appreciate any help you can give.

Sue.

Hi, I found this information during a visit to the records office today.  Sadly I am back at work full time tomorrow so am unlikely to visit the RO again in the near future.  Hopefully some other kind soul might do the lookup for you, otherwise I can do it in time.
Didn't want you to think I was ignoring your post  ;)

Oh, thank you so much anyway. Unfortunately, I live nowhere near Suffolk, but if you wouldn't mind next time you go, if you have the time, perhaps you could take look.
Many thanks for all your kind help though. I really appreciate it.

Sue.

Hi it's the school holidays  :D and I've been back to the RO  ;D

I looked again at the Sutton register but couldn't see a burial at Sutton for the first Mary Waller, only the second one buried in February 1773.

I think I've identified some baptisms from the first marriage:

George Waller s/o William and Mary Waller baptised 20th June 1759
William baptised 12th or 22nd August 1762
Thomas 18th February 1764
Sally baptised 30th August 1769  (buried 10th October 1769)
