No record this end of the witnesses but my very distant cousin
32 Mayfair Rd
Salisbury SP1 1PQ has seen the parish register and may have recorde it.
I have access[30 miles] to Lds Family History Centre but as these are
not in mydirect line have not bothered. Limited funds due to Govt.
Pension cutback make me concentrate on the free and the local eg early
Thank you for your help. If the connection holds there is quite a scad
of Letty's descendants in NZ. One recently got herself murdered by her
live in boyfriend. Left 3 kids at the age of 21.
