Marriage of John Gray and Susan Flood
« on: Sunday 15 July 18 16:54 BST (UK) »
Hello,

The couple were christening children in Great Sampford in the 1740s and 50s. They christened a son, William Flood Gray, on the 4th of May 1755. There is a Susan Flood christened in Great Sampford in 1720. Can anyone find a marriage record?

I'd appreciate any help!

Adam

Does it definitely say Mary? I have her down as Susan Gray on the baptisms.

The original record is difficult to read but i am fairly certain it is Mary definitely not Susan. The surname could be GRAY but I think it reads GREY, however that would be down to the personal interpretation of the person writing the entry

 I have come across incorrect entries, I sometimes wonder how long after the event the register was actually completed especially before 1754.
