Title: Richard Casswell and Ann Marchant Marriage Trowbridge 1757
Post by: Michael Caswell on December 08, 2019, 06:42:42 am
I have mistakenly added the wrong Ann Marchant to the marriage of Richard.  Ann, as the daughter of Thomas, would likely be very incorrect, as this would mean she was only about 15 when she married.

Fortunately, I downloaded the entire Merchant/Marchant IGI list for Wiltshire many years ago, and on checking through I found a far more likely candidate. Ann Marchant, daughter of Richard, born 1719 in Trowbridge.

The actual marriage certificate shows Ann written up as Marchent, but she signed it Marchant.

So, I am changing my file to read MARCHANT.

More work required here.
