Help needed to read 1731 marriage record
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 10:13 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I have a marriage record from 1731 taking place in Fleet Prison & Rules of the Fleet.

It is two lines and I think the first is 'Richard Peyton & Mary Claver Ba (batchelor) & widow'
then on the second line 'Naylor of Dudley...............'  then I'm lost.

Hope someone can help me please.

Cheers

Difficult
I wonder if he is a Nailer of Dudley Com, (Common?) Worcestershire  ???

You have to scroll through this document quite a bit but it mentions ‘The Cock’, Fleet Bridge as being a famous marrying house

What is the document? If it's a list of marriages, the next line doesn't seem to fit unless there's more to it.

It looks like it says "Naylor of Dudley Coin Woisher at the Cock".  Not sure though!

The same article as previously mentioned but easier to read.

Richard Peyton & Mary Claver Ba(chelor) & Widow
Nayler of Dudley Com(itatu) Worster at the Cock


Looking at the other entries in the register, Nayler (= nailer) is clearly the groom’s occupation.

Com(itatu) Worster = in the county of Worcester

The Cock will be the name of the tavern where they married.

Ah, didn't see the edit before posting! That makes much more sense.
