Marriage 3 Jan 1739, Bredgar

Elizabeth Rogers to William Rassell of Molash


Just found out that the marriage took place by Licence. The licence states that both William and Elizabeth were "of Molash" so it confirms that both parties were from that parish. The licence was dated 2 Jan 1739 and states that the marriage was to take place at Molash, Bredgar or Borden.

At the end of the entry it also says "see Raysell". So "Raisell" seems to be a corruption of "Raysell" which itself is a variant or corruption of Rassell.

It's good when these things come together.


Maybe if there are some children from this couple who married, their baptisms may give a more reliable spelling of the local parish vicars own congregation knowledge of their surname as parishioners to his church.

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth
