Hi Paul

Were the parents still alive? Do you know who the witnesses were?

William's father Benjamin Townrow would have been 57 in 1830 as he was born around 1775 so its quite possible he had died by then. I don't recognise the names of the witnesses either.

Just found this thread after starting a post today

Jonas is my relative and was living in Newark so I found your message very interesting!

Yes it was dissolved.
On his childrens baptism's after this date his occupation is given as Fishmonger and in 1830 I have found him running a beer house in the directories as well as a fishmonger in the directories. After that have found a hand written letter in the university archives giving notice to quit land he had in Hawton owing a years rent!
The family then move from Newark to Leicester and again his occupation on his various entries for the family give his occupation as fishmonger.
