The Common Room / Cousin Marriages
« on: Sunday 17 January 21 09:58 GMT (UK)  »
My wife and I are distant cousins, we share 5x ggrandparents.
In my tree there are another 4 cousin marriages  ranging from first cousins to more distant, all are in Shropshire in the 1800's.
How common is this?
Do other RC'ers have as many or maybe more?

The Stay Safe Board / Wales to go into "firebreak"
« on: Monday 19 October 20 12:51 BST (UK)  »
Mark Drakeford, Wales First Minister has just announced that from 6pm Friday Wales is to go into 2 week "firebreak" lockdown with restrictions similar to those that were in place during the national lockdown ie non essential shops to close, essential journeys only, work from home, no mixing of households (some exceptions). Primary and special schools to re-open after half term.

At last we are not going to reinstate Offa's Dyke!! I can put my spade away.  :D

The Common Room / Doxey Wood, Chetwynd, Shropshire
« on: Monday 14 September 20 15:09 BST (UK)  »
William Sambrooke was buried in Chetwynd in 1694. The parish record says:
William Sambrooke of Doxey Wood late of Sambrooke aged 91 Bur Jul 23.

I've searched maps but I can't find Doxey Wood. In fact this is the only mention of it I can find.
is there someone with local knowledge that can help.

The Common Room / Married after "Registrars Banns"
« on: Tuesday 07 April 20 11:35 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,
Can anyone explain why a couple should marry after registrars banns? They were both from the area, so why not just get the banns read out in church?

Also the vicar made a point of entering in the register that the bride was "born out of wedlock" under Fathers Name and Surname.  All others I have seen have just had a line drawn where no fathers name is written.
This marriage took place in the district church Lawley, Shropshire, May 15 1880
