Subject: [CHS] Marriage by License?
Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2000 11:20:14 EDT
I have my 3x great grandmother Sarah Potts 1807 and her brother Robert
marrying in 1806 in Little Budworth by license.
An earlier ancestor did the same thing ,same village, in1789 ,The next year
her brother married by banns
Why would licenses be issued? Shotgun marriages?
Jean in sunny at the moment , but who knows by the weekend with Hurricane
