Phonetically speaking - Completed
« on: Wednesday 23 December 15 18:47 GMT (UK) »
The Parish Register of St Lawrence, Alvechurch, Worcester has an entry for the marriage between Thomas Andrus [sic] and Sary [sic] Asson [sic] on 17 May 1762.  Both marked.  Witnesses were Adam Morris and Ann Asson [sic], who also marked.

Thomas Handrus was later recorded as Thomas Andrews and Sary was later recorded as Sarah.

It seems the cleric who wrote the record did so as he heard it.  I have tried looking for Sarah under a number of variations of Asson, with no success.

Does anyone have any idea for the surname of Sarah?

Thanks in anticipation.

I wondered about 'arrison,  but I cannot see a birth in Alvechurch at the right time.
Still think there might be a letter at the beginning missing.

Alvechurch batch no is C025492

Clerics were very well educated ,having to know Latin etc. Would it perhaps be the  Parish clerk who would  not have had the level of education an ordained Cleric, even a Curate ,would have had.

In my family tree there is a Ferdinand written as "Hardome" ::)Viktoria.

Asson is a name on its own and is most prevalent in Staffordshire followed by Lancashire and Warwickshire.

Apart from Surrey and Kent it is most common down the left/Irish side of England

But if it is a mistake I know of a Gasson here in Oz so maybe its that. Looking once again at the name distribution it looks as if where Asson was mildly popular in Kent and Surrey , Gasson is most popular in Kent and Sussex. But it seems to follow a similar pattern as Asson down that Eastern Belt. (with extra counties)

Maybe the G has been dropped off over time. Not that I know nuffin ;)

If a letter has been dropped, the most common letter is "H".
