Looking for possible Jersey marriage early 1840s
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 19:26 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I am looking for a marriage between William GODFREY (born Devon) and Mary Peck FOORD (born Hampshire). Unable to find a marriage record in England

First child - William Thomas Foord GODFREY born in Jersey 1844, baptised St Helier.

Thanks

Age:   26 born 1816
Marriage Date:   4 Jul 1842
St Helier, Jersey

Father:   William Foord
Spouse:   George Stockman

Spouses father John Stockman

Her place of birth was Southsea Hampshire and his was Exmouth Devon.

Hello

Very interesting!

Can you check for a subsequent marriage to William Godfrey please. She is with him in London in 1851

Her age also weird - actually born about 1809. Father correct and she is with her parents in 1841

So it looks as if she married 3 times?

I can't find what should be a Stockman/Godfrey marriage between 1842 and 1861.

Yes it looks like 3 times. Was George Stockman a Tailor?

If he was then he is in the 1841 census living in St Helier and then pops up married to a Margaret in Portsea, Hampshire in 1851
