Re: Marriage record - Ann Miles. married 1838

I think I'll draw a line through my Bonsall enquiry. The link provided by David of Ann Miles marrying Francis Bates in Polesworth in 1834 now seems the most likely way for me to proceed.

I've found references to Ann Bates nee Miles on consecutive census from 1841 with the later ones showing her as being born in Heather, Leicestershire and living in Desford. I feel this is the link I'm looking for in order to connect the dots.

As previously noted a cousin (also Ann Miles) of my Gx3 grandmother Ann married an Abraham Bates in Oakthorpe in 1828. I haven't established the link between the Bates boys yet but no doubt it's there.

The Ann Miles-Henry Bonsall connection may still be significant but that can be a battle for another day. For now I'm happy to try and clarify the Miles-Bates connection.

Thanks everyone for their input especially to David for significant research.
