REIGHTON: Reighton Marriages, 1850-1911


Marriages at St. Peter's Church, Reighton 1850-1911

Editor's note
If not otherwise stated it can be assumed that the people in this register were of full age and resident in Reighton at the time of marriage. In many cases it is not stated if the marriage was by banns or licence. (X) indicates that the person made their mark rather than signed the register. However, this should not be taken as proof of literacy as many of the signatures seem to be drawn rather then written and many are very difficult to decipher. For example Frances Penelope Piercey signs herself as Frances Penelapy Piercy (she was a dressmaker, the daughter of William Piercey, the landlord of the Dotterel) and Matthew Crawford signs 'Matthew Crawfad', a spelling which finds its way into the 1881 census. Also, in many cases the signature of a more obviously educated person is so florid as to make it difficult to read. LB
