Marriage Certificate
« on: Tuesday 05 February 19 18:57 GMT (UK) »
Hi, looking for some opinions on this marriage registration. The parts sticking me are the Father's names (surname of the bride's father is Blair), profession of the bride's father and the lower of the two witnesses names (Mary something).
Thank you for any help offered.

I think Mary's surname is Armstrong (her mark)

The brides father is Ja(me)s?

Thank you all for the fantastically rapid responses! Carolew the groom's surname (on here) is Air, but this is the first I've seen this spelling. Subsequent generations are "Ayre" or in one instance "Ayr". The Armstrong ties in with a later descendant's middle name, I wondered where that name came from!
Again, thank you all for your help.
