William SNELL
« on: Friday 22 September 17 14:49 BST (UK) »
William SNELL was bap 30 Dec 1730 in Beaford, parents William and Mary. The only marriage I can find is for William SNELL and Mary COKER on 8 Sep 1696 in Dolton, which is in the right location but probably way too early.
Can anyone help me sort this out, please?

I don't believe it!
When I looked up that record yesterday - and I'm looking at the print-out now - it gave the mother's name as Mary. Following your reply, I've looked it up again and, sure enough, mother's name is now Anne!!!!!
Many thanks for your help. I was tying myself in knots trying to reconcile dates and places. I'll get the details into my tree before they change again!

The parish register copy says Ann(e) that won't change

Thanks.
I've just tried to find the marriage of William and Ann(e) in 1726, but it does not appear to be on-line. Did you find it in the PR?

F M P has Devon records.  I have just checked the image of the listing and the year should be 1727 -confirmed by Boyds marriage index
