Married in the church according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Established Church, By Banns by me, Thos.Alban (Rector).
This Marriage was solemnized between us, David PRICE and Jane BIRD
in the Presence of us, Ann Jones, Isaac Maddox
There are no fathers recorded for the bride and groom. However, oddly this seems to be the case with several other marriages at this time at this parish. Surely not all these couples were illegitimate? It is possible, I suppose, but I woinder if this was sloppiness on the part of the Rector. Difficult to decide.
