LAVENHAM marriage HOWE-DIXON
« on: Sunday 21 October 18 22:43 BST (UK) »
If anyone has a spare moment in the Suffolk Record Office, I'd be grateful if they could check for a marriage in Lavenham in 1794. I have a Sarah Howe, baptised in Lavenham in 1778, who is married with a child and living in Whitechapel by May 1794. Her husband is one John Dixon, who does not appear to have been liked by the Howe family, if Sarah's brother's will is anything to go by! They could have got married anywhere, but I can't find the marriage anywhere else and I'd like to check Lavenham. Thanks.

Is this her christening with surname, HAWSE?

Yes, that's the christening, but I think it's a mis-transcription. Her parents are Thomas Howe and Mary nee Sparke. It may be that the marriage is also mistranscribed or that it was incorrectly written down in the first place. The name 'Sparke' is commonly written down as 'Smart', though it's a family name which goes back centuries as 'Sparke' in Lavenham and Great Waldingfield.
