1831 Marriage in Gorleston
« on: Wednesday 02 October 19 15:32 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find out if there is any more information available for the marriage of George Rounce Springall and Ann Elizabeth Wright in Gorleston on 31st July 1831.  Springall may be mis-spelt and Wright may be Bright - mis-read/transcribed in many records.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately I can only find transcripts, which just give names, date and place.

Hi did either or both of them survive to any census/children?

PS Springall appears to be a Norfolk surname.

Yes, they survived, had children and are in census and I'm working towards their death.  I have parents names of George Rounce Springall (senior) and Charity Boyce and possibly Samuel Wright and Elizabeth but was hoping the marriage record might just confirm some of that or add another snippet:  witnesses, literacy etc.  Ancestry has them as Norfolk born and I believe Gorleston was a village which 'switched' between Suffolk and Norfolk which will add some confusion!

 :) OK can you provide any census for eg 1841/51 as I am having trouble locating them together?

In 1851 they are in St. Clement Danes in Middlesex.  George and Ann and a whole bunch of children.

Registration District Strand
Sub Registration St. Mary
ED 6a
Household 66
Piece 1511
Folio 297
Page 11

I hope that is enough - I'm not very good with the references for census!

PS a marriage in 1831 would not provide all the information you require, why would Wright become Bright on certain records?

Thank you for the 1841 census.

Re the Bright/Wright change.  I started researching this family some years ago and when I received the 1843 birth certificate for Edward Springall born to George and Ann I read the mother's maiden name as Bright.  It looked like a 'B' and I thought it was rather a nice name!  Now that I have come back to this family to resume research I have noticed that quite a few trees on Ancestry have George Rounce Springall married to Ann Elizabeth Bright.  Either they have read the name the same as I have or they have taken the name from my tree!  However, when I started to use the GRO indexes online to pin down the births of George and Ann's other children (the siblings of 1843 Edward) I noticed that the mother's maiden name was listed as Wright for the younger siblings even though Edward's own entry in their records was Bright.)  I looked again at previous records and decided that, on balance, the handwriting could confuse the 'B' with a 'W' and that the later, GRO records were probably correct.
