Occasionally you do find that new FindMyPast Friday records are merely duplicates of records already available online on other pay per view sites, or even free on FamilySearch. So really they are not new records.

There were no records for my ancestor's marriage on FindMyPast (his death was on there).  Ancestry has him on some of their family trees, as does Familysearch, (all submitted, but the records are all wrong), they have him married to his mother, or even his daughter.  I guess no-one can find out who his wife is, so they've just made things up.

As he'd been a church warden, I even wrote to the Parish Clerk of the church, but they don't hold records of church wardens and he wasn't listed in the marriages in their records.  I guess I'll just have to look further afield, although I don't know where if a general search of all sites doesn't show anything.

If they spelt "licences" "properly" , it would say "properly".

Of course, the discovery of a marriage licence is not evidence that the marriage took place, any more than the reading of banns is. Just a thought.

Not even found any banns for my 11 x g.grandfather's marriage. His first child was born 1531, so I guess the marriage was before then.  I don't even know if there were such things as banns at that time.

The Suffolk ones appear to be published transcripts which have been available to view for free elsewhere for some time anyway.
Ooh - where? (please)
