Who was Elizabeth's husband?
« on: Friday 09 February 18 00:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi

The following is an extract from the 1754 Will of Thomas Rogers of Molash in which he names three of his five daughters and their respective husbands.

I am having difficulty working out the surname of Elizabeth's husband, William. It looks like either William Raisell, or Raiswell however I can't find a marriage for them.

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions

Matt

The writers 's' & 'e' (like in daughters) are clear enough in other words - the Rai is clear enough - thus Raisell

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

Hi

That was exactly my thinking, hence Raisell was my initial thought. I quick second look made me unsure if I had misread it though.

Many thanks for confirming it as Raisell.

Could be a surname, misheard or unstanding of the (county village ?) local verbal interpretation of dialect/slang corruption of Russel or Russell by this what looks like (an alien of university/college environmental life) a very well educated writer - person.

In Yorkshire slang - We sound to say Reight - for the word Right

 or Thi for The

example

The other night ~ Sounds like in slang -Thi other nite ( to a none local person sounds like ' Thi to'ther neat')

I wonder if it could be Raiswell spelt Raisell with a silent "W" as in Norwich?

Hi

Thanks for that. I think Rassell and Raissell or Raisell must definitely be the same name. I think the spelling variation must be due to the name getting corrupted as people misheard it or spelt it differently.

Just found out that the marriage took place by Licence. The licence states that both William and Elizabeth were "of Molash" so it confirms that both parties were from that parish. The licence was dated 2 Jan 1739 and states that the marriage was to take place at Molash, Bredgar or Borden.

At the end of the entry it also says "see Raysell". So "Raisell" seems to be a corruption of "Raysell" which itself is a variant or corruption of Rassell.

It's good when these things come together.
