    • Both of this parish, by banns.
      There is an alternative marriage - to Mary PAGE at Hailsham on 01 Jun 1795, she being a minor of Hailsham, he of Hellingly, by licence.
      I've gone with Lydia ROBERTS because of the age of this William when he married, 22 as opposed to 32, and one of the witnesses is Henry BLUNDEN. He witnessed Edward BURTON's marriage at Hellingly on 04 Oct 1786.
      The other witness to William and Lydia's marriage was Wm. BUTTON who has as yet to be identified.
