Original marriage record in Maulden Bedfordshire 1856
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 23:54 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Does anyone have access to, or know where I can see online, the original marriage registers in Maulden, Bedfordshire?
I need to see the original register copy for the marriage of David ODELL to Ann(e) COLEMAN.
They married on the 8 Mar 1856 in Maulden.
In case someone says it is on familysearch, I cannot see the image on there, someone has the transcript of the marriage attached to the tree on there but I need the original image in order to verify I have the correct one.

Hi if you have access to Ancestry there are several family trees for this couple with a copy of the marriage attached to their tree

Do you mean that you think the Parish Record may be different than the M/C that someone has on their Tree on Anc?
David age 25 a Sweep, Father James a Sweep
Anne age 22, Father William a Labourer
David signed, Ann made her mark.
Witnesses John Willmer/Mary Ann Upton

Why not contact the Bedfordshire Archives & Records Service for a copy of the marriage entry which should be a copy of the marriage certificate. OK they might charge you, but then the cert would cost you 9.50 from the GRO.

Thank you for your help everyone.

I have an ancestry subscription but not my tree on there so I cannot attach the certificate but at least I can look at it. I don't usually look at trees as I prefer to research things myself that way I know it is as accurate as I can get it so didn't think to check that part!

Thank you John I can contact the Bedfordshire Archives but I do not have any spare money for certificates and copies (especially when I am not sure it is the correct line and need to see signatures so copies are no good) so that is why I need free online access sites.

If you have an Ancestry subscription you should be able to find a copy of this marriage certificate on the Birks-Kelly public tree; however they claim his mother to be Elizabeth Ward while most of the others have her as Elizabeth Billingham.

The simple fact is that this parishes' marriage records are not available online, on free sites or even subscription sites.

What is wrong with seeing the signature on the copy of the certificate that's on the various trees?

Why is seeing the signature 'to compare' so important?  There was only one David Odell born Maulden at the relevant time so he's easily identifiable.

I thought at this date the marriage register entry was the the same as the marriage certificate ? If not, what are the differences ?
