Marriage of Samuel and Violetta Roberts

Postby molly08 » Tue Apr 23, 2019 2:39 pm

I am trying to find the correct marriage for Samuel Roberts at St Chad's, Shrewsbury, Shropshire around the early 1700's.He is the father of my husband's 5 x grandmother named Martha.
On Martha's baptism record and that of her 4 siblings, her mother's name was Violetta :-

Margaret born 10/2/1750 baptised 3/3/1750
William born 24/4/1752 baptised 3/5/1752
Edward born 21/3/1755 baptised 13/4/1755
Martha born 3/4/1757 baptised 29/5/1757
Mary born 12/1/1760 baptised 2/2/1760

There is also a record of Violetta Roberts burial on 23/3/1760

All of these events took place at St Chad's Shrewsbury.

The only marriage I can find for Samuel is that to a Martha Mansell at St Chad's is on 27/1/1749.

I have searched all the records I can think of to find a link between Violetta and Martha,but can find nothing to suggest that she changed her name. I have also looked at other marriages in other areas for Samuel but can find nothing that fits.
Can anyone suggest what else I can try?
Thanks in advance
