Marriage witnesses for David Lewis and Mary Howells
« on: Tuesday 05 March 19 15:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

Please could somebody help me to try and decipher the names of the marriage witnesses on my 3rd great grandparents' marriage parish record.

Thank you in advance. :)

I don't know what the first one is (Thomas) but he is a witness to lots of other marriages at the same church around that time (1834) so was presumably a churchwarden. The second one looks like James Jermyn.

The first one could be Thomas Prickett. He was a blacksmith in St Issells.

ShaunJ - thank you for having a look for and confirming Thomas. It's just I am trying to identify the family of my 3rd great grandmother Mary Howells. The marriage took place in St. Issells, Pembrokeshire.

Kindest regards,
