Richard Gallop - Cant find a Hastings marriage 1794s
« on: Sunday 04 February 18 22:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi guys,

I have been researching my 5th great grandparents Richard and Mercy Gallop of Hastings and according to a document at the East Sussex History Centre Mercys real name was Mary White and she married Richard on the 14th October 1794 at Battle but I cant seem to find this marriage anywhere not even on Family Search and was wondering if anyone else is having problems finding records for the late 1700s. I have also searched Ancestry and Find My Past.  Any ideas where else I can look?

Thank you in advance

Ann

FamilySearch doesn't cover all the Sussex parishes.
The Sussex Marriage Index does have Richard Gallop, bachelor, of All Saints Hastings, marrying Mary White at Battle, 14 October 1794. By banns.
Mary was a spinster, of the parish.

This is from TheKeep website?
Lewes Sessions: orders relating to poor relief
15 Jan 1795

You can see the Order Book on FamilySearch (you need to be logged in)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DWL3-Z6G?i=711&cat=685415

Order for removal of Rd. Gallop his wife + child from Battle to All Saints in the Town + Port pf Hastings
Doesn't mention the marriage though.

Hi Ann
You can also see the Removal Order on FamilySearch
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DTQS-45S?i=597&cat=216121

The Marriage Index is I believe available to SFHG members.
I'll send you a pm
John
