Thank you Adrian. I've had suspicions running round my head for a while that this wasn't the right Walter and Mary marriage that I'm after and I think you've just confirmed that for me.

Puts me back to square one looking for the right Walter and Mary. Might have to put a separate post up asking for help as I'm a bit stuck

Thanks again

I think it just says "full" and "age" in the age column - i.e. That they were both of full age.
