Wright William

Witnesses = Mattw Bottick & James Heptonstall [possibly a church official, appears on other records]

Marys Ann's surname looks like Landers as does father, John.

Thanks Geoff.

Please email the marriage image.

One newspaper account of telegrams received on day of departure has date as 23 Oct. Anyway, George left before Amy was born.

Damn stupid update. I have UK English but US keyboard so I get $ not £ on the keyboard but after the update it keeps switching back to UK English and UK keyboard even though I tell it the default is UK English but US keyboard.

That well known bug has not been fixed.

Image has arrived thanks.
