Marriage of Mary Barnes
« on: Thursday 28 May 20 12:08 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am looking for the marriage of William ROBINS and Mary Barnes around 1823 in Sussex. Mary was born in Wisborough Green in 1801. And I know that by 1841, the couple had a pork butcher shop in George Street in Brighton. So they could had married at Wisborough Green or Brighton. Or indeed somewhere completely different. The date of 1823 comes from their only child, Emma being born in 1824 in Brighton. There is some evidence that William was a non-conformist of the Independent variety.

I know that Mary's sister Sarah was baptised on 30 Jan 1803 at Wisborough Green. I have seen a transcript of the record, but would also like to locate an image. Any ideas?

They married in Lewes at St John sub Castro on 8 June 1824.  Both otp and William was apparently a widower.

Nell - that's truly wonderful and very prompt.

I have an FS account, but for some reason when I searched for Sarah, all I was offered was a transcript and a tree! So many thanks for finding the baptism.

I still can't find the marriage. Where did you find it?

Sussex Marriage Index.  Unfortunately the parish register itself (only transcripts) does not seem to be available on FS.
