1783 Marriage witnesses

Postby maplerose » Mon Dec 18, 2017 2:47 am

Good morning UK, can you please advise me of the names of the witnesses to this marriage, which took place in Mancetter, Warwickshire. Looks to me like 'John Wist' and 'William Lagae'. Any other suggestions :). Much appreciated.

William Lagae - The same person is a serial witness - look at other weddings around the image you have. This is not unusual, he might have been a trusted member of the community who could write. So he may not be relevant to your tree.

However if you do search for William Lagae you will see that there are several births/marriages/burials in Mancetter around the same time and the name is transcribed as Lagoe, Lago, Lagae in different instances. You could delve a bit deeper to take your choice

Not sure about the other name
