Help with bride's name
« on: Friday 24 July 20 09:11 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help with the name of Thomas Pegg's bride please? To me it looks like Brickton or Brockton but I can't read either rendition!

The quality of the scan from FindMyPast is very poor I'm afraid.

Many thanks,

Paul

It could well be Bradshaw as Karen suggests

I'll go with Bradshaw too  :)

Add - I noticed that FindMyPast gave up on two of the entries and suggested Brodhouse on another

Thanks for the suggestions, Bradshaw looks very plausible... still not sure what's going on in the middle of her name, looks like the start of the surname interrupted by her mark.

It looks to me as though Thomas placed his "X" a little too low, so the scribe had to write "Mary" and "Bradshaw" with a big space between them, in which she placed her "X". The "her" in "her mark" is very unclear, due to the poor scan.

Best regards,
Karen
