Heathfield Marriage info.
« on: Tuesday 09 June 20 11:42 BST (UK) »
Hi all

Does anyone have access to the 'actual' marriage register for Thomas WEEKS and Hannah AKEHURST, 21 Apr 1822 at Heathfield?!  I'm wondering if it states anything about their ages, etc.

Looking at censuses they seem quite young to be married!!!  The 1841 has them aged 35 and 30, and the 1851 has Thomas aged 38 so born c1811...

As usual, online tree's have made up all kinds of ridiculous stories.

It seems their last child was born in 1842,  mmn AKEHURST.  No baptism that I could find.

Many thanks,

bitzar.

Many thanks,

I've managed to squint enough to work out the writing...  :o

Nothing stands out for her birth... The 1814 is not possible, is it!  Haven't started on him yet.

Thanks for the baptism.  I did see it but there are also WICKS baptised at a similar time.  I need to work out if there are two families or not.  Some of their children are definitely baptised as WICKS at Burwash.

There is also a baptism 26 Jul 1822 but the surname is WICKS.  I wonder if its a private baptism for the same child!

jonw65 also found a William at Wadhurst 1822.  There are 2 other's I've found, Frances 1828, and Lois 1842.  I'm descended from Harriot/Harriet/Harriett.

Their ages at marriage concerns me!

Many thanks,

bitzar.
