Legal or not, many people ignored such conventions. It was against the law for a man to marry is deceased wifeís sister, but many did, I have several in my tree. They would often marry in  another parish where they were not known, but I have one such marriage which took place in the same parish as the manís first marriage, both performed by the same vicar.

An average of 15 miles was quite a normal walk, it was also common to travel quite a distance by horse and cart. People moved around far more than we might imagine.

That would account for a larger pension, although it still seems rather high for the times.

I would query whether the OP has read the record correctly, it seems an exorbitant amount. The daily pay for a serving solder in the later Victorian era  was only roughly one shilling a day.

Have you noticed that there is an arrow against his name on the original image of the index? It is the only name marked that way on the page, perhaps the reason for that  is whatever is preventing him showing up on the GRO website.

If you have the vaccine app on your phone do you have to be  using mobile data to show it in airports to prove you have had both jabs.
A good alternative would be a form you could download and save.
Does anyone know about this.
 

What is the name / title of the vaccine app, please?
