Barnes/Leam Crichton 1765
« on: Wednesday 26 January 22 20:13 GMT (UK) »
Iím looking at my 5xG Grandparents, John Barnes and Elizabeth Leam, who married on 2 Jan 1765 in Crich.

The problem is that I canít find a baptism record for Elizabeth. And Iím wondering if she had been widowed before marrying John Barnes. Thereís nothing in the marriage record to indicate that..

There is though,an Elizabeth Thorp, who marries Samuel Leam in 1755. Thereís also a burial for a Samuel Leam in 1760 (though nothing to indicate this is the same Samuel)

Has anyone got anything that might help to clarify who Elizabeth really was?

Many thanks

The entry for the marriage on the FreeReg site states that John is a bachelor and Elizabeth is a spinster.

To be absolutely certain you need to see an image of the original entry in the Parish Register. Never rely on transcriptions as mistakes are often made.

Thank you.

The register entry shows dates for the reading of Banns and of the marriage. It indicates both were of Ďthis parishí, but does not mention their previous Ďconditioní.

I wonder where FreeReg got the info from then. They usually copy the whole entry and don't add bits.

Thank you. I had found that marriage, but not the licence.

Iím still not sure whether it is the Elizabeth Iím looking for. But certainly a possibility

Thereís a Samuel Leam buried at Fritchley 30 Jul 1760, which could fit with Elizabeth then remarrying in 1765 to John Barnes
