Subject: Re: [Ess] CARTER, DRAKE, BARTHOLOMEW - correction
Date: Mon, 23 Oct 2006 00:06:36 +0100
I recently posted a message to the list which included a comment about
a Martha BARTHOLOMEW.
Martha is named as a witness to the marriage of Peter DRAKE and Matilda
CARTER in 1858 (Romford) and I assumed she was Matilda's sister.
Looking again at the certificate I realise it is much more likely that
she is Peter DRAKE's sister as the other witness was David CARTER so
Martha must have been a witness from the DRAKE family. I believe
Peter DRAKE also had a sister Martha DRAKE b. between about 1820 and
1830 so this is more likely but needs to be confirmed.
My apologies for the error/ assumption,
