More Mysteries

FindMyPast offered free access this last weekend. I used it to download a lot of 1851 census images, but late last night I found some London marriage images I hadn’t got. As ever, they raise more questions than answers.

Jean Mickelwhit married Peter Detry at St James the Less, Thorndike St. London on 27th Aug 1808. Who was she? I have no other records of a Jean in my database until 1921.

David Mickelthwaite married Elizabeth Saunders at St George’s Hanover Sq. London on 21st Jan 1834. They had a daughter Elizabeth Ann born 1837, the same year that David died. She died just after the 1851 census when she was in a hospital. I have no record of what became of wife Elizabeth. Nor have I any idea where David came from. Once again I have no record of any suitable Davids.

If you have any ideas, I’d be delighted to hear them!
