Stuck on John Dent and Mary Myers Any- advice appreciated
« on: Thursday 08 October 20 18:59 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find information on John Dent and Mary Myers 4x great grandparents, especially their parents and Johns first marriage

I found their marriage certificate and the important part reads as follows
St Dunstan and all Saints Stepney Mar 9 1787

John Dent of this parish and of the Hamlet of Ratcliff  widower and Mary Myers of this parish and formerly of the same Hamlet.

I looked up Ratcliff(e) and cannot find  a church before the early 1800s.   I learnt that Ratcliff was a very bad area of London or suburb of London at the time.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratcliff

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and best wishes from Winnipeg Canada.

Jim

Hi
I don't see formerly, just that John was of this Parish and Hamlet of Ratcliff
Mary the same

By Banns. Looks like the second witness is a regular.

Thanks for the reply.  You are absolutely right it does not say fomerly
So I suppose they went to church where they married but lived in Ratcliff
I corrected my original entry.

However I think I am at dead end.
