church record Holy Cross Bearsted Kent
« on: Sunday 12 September 21 09:43 BST (UK) »
Richard Bean married Susanna Edwards on the 10.3.1805 in Bearsted, could someone please look up this marriage and see if Richard was a widower. I do not have Find my Past.
Thank you so much.

The image on FindMyPast is for the dates of Banns - no other information, other than both are "of this Parish".

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Just for reference there is a marriage of a Richard Bean, bachelor to a Rachel East spinster on 18th December 1798 at St. Mary the Virgin, Dover.

I can't find any burial record for a Rachel Bean from 1798 to 1806 so may not be your Richard.

  There is actually a marriage record on FindMyPast, transcribed as Bcan! It does not mention marital status, but the witnesses were George Sotherden Allman and Catherine Allman, nee Edwards, which may or may not help.

I can see why they transcribed it as Bcan.......image below.  Surprised there is no indication of their marital status.

Of the eight marriages on the image, five show no marital status at all, one has Bachelor, one has Spinster and one has both Bachelor and Spinster.

Either the couples didn't provide that information or the vicar was lax about completing those details.
