I am trying to find a connection between Hannah Manuel and Mary Ann Manuel.

Mary Ann Manuel
Marriage Date: 29 Jan 1822
Marriage Place: Dawley-Magna, Shropshire, England
Spouse: George Goodwin
FHL Film Number: 502921

Text: 25 Oct 1819 Abraham Griffiths, widr., & Hannah Manuel, wid.
Book: Marriages, 1819 to 1837 (Marriage)
Collection: Shropshire: Buildwas, Berrington - Parish Registers, Lichfield Diocese

An Abraham Griffiths and a Margaret Manuell were witnesses at Many Ann Manuel's wedding.

Looking for anything on Abraham Griffiths, Hannah Manuel, Mary Ann Manuel and Margaret Manuell.

Many thanks.
Geoff

I kept finding stuff on Manuel families in America and not Shropshire.
I had a similar problem, but when I limited searches to England, Somerset kept coming up. I have some vague connections for these families in Somerset but can't find a link to Shropshire :rolleyes:

Thanks, Lizzy..
Had a quick look through some old notes, there is a reference to Buildwas. I'll check the tree a bit later..
Unfortunately there is no more than the marriage in Buildwas as post #1 in my notes.

If Hannah was her mother, I find it strange that she was not a witness, unless of course she had died by 1822, when Mary Ann married :rolleyes:

The other witness is a Margaret Manuell whom I can only suggest was a sister :rolleyes:

The name Margaret Sprague came into equation for some reason, but I can't find the old notes.. As I recall she married a John Manuell [may have been Cornwall].

Mary Ann d. 1828 aged 27y, so b. c1801, but where?
