« on: Friday 01 February 19 20:34 GMT (UK) »
Hello  i have just come across a marriage record

William Smith to a Charlotte Smith, 3rd August 1806 , Howell Lincolnshire , Gypsies

Just wondered if this could be Rosetta Smith's parents ,if so any ideas please who Charlotte Smith's parents could be.

I am also interested in Thomas Sherriff born 1834 son of Thomas Smith / Sherriff and Sophia Twiddy if anyone has any info on him it would be very much appreciated.

many thanks

You might like to look at nearby marriages/baptisms

Edward Smith and Mary Russell wed Monday 22nd October, 1804 at All Saints church Hougham, Lincolnshire, both Gipsies & Sojourners (Find My Past)

William Smith was baptised on Sunday 22nd January, 1815 at St Marys at South Kyme, Lincolnshire
The father was James Smith and the mothers name was Unity. Fther was a Traveling Gipsy.

Possibly the men were all related and of the same generation? (Find My Past)
