Please can the Witness Signatures be improved enhanced?
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 21:31 BST (UK) »
Hello

18th August 1778 Marriage of John Hood of Scarborough, Widower and Sarah Hammond, Widow, at St Giles in The Fields, Middlesex.

I have the Allegation & Bond and believe these signatures are different.

Perhaps bottom witness might be Stephens?

Thank you, Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

I would say the bottom one looks like William Stephens. You might have more luck with the top one if you get a new image taken from the original record.

Also very difficult wih it enlarged so much..... Stephens seems to be 2nd one
Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

I agree with Stephens and the Christian name looks to be a shorten name possibly beginning with M. The first looks like a shortened Jonathan T....os maybe Thomas.

Hello All

Thank you.

I'll email the archive to look at original.

Sarah Hammond was a Widow and Mariners are a nuisance away, in a City!
