YATES, William - 1808 marriage to Margaret Lloyd, Dawley Magna
« on: Friday 06 July 18 03:17 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone.

This query follows on from one posted here: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=796240 with a related post here: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=796338

In 1808 William Yates marries Margaret Lloyd in Dawley Magna.

I am hoping that a parish record is available in which William names his father.

He was very likely in his 40s and a widower, so I'm not sure if you did name your father in those circumstances.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

You are lucky.  William is named as a widower from the parish of Deal in Kent    Margaret was of the parish

They married by license and witnesses were Ann Tranter and Edward Lloyd

Thanks, Kay!

At least that answers one question.
