Are they the same person - John Kirby & Elizabeth Harrison


Active member
I have a John Kirby marrying an Elizabeth Harrison on 9th Oct. 1720, Dersingham (unspecified). I also have another John Kirby marrying an Elizabeth Handason on the 3rd Oct. 1720 (archdeacons transcripts).
My query:
Could these two Elizabeths be the same person as handason and Harrison sound slightly the same. Does the handason stand for Anderson or should it have been transcribed as Harrison. If they are the same but one spelt differently am I correct in thinking that the Harrison I went with is correct. What are the chances of two John Kirbys marrying two Elizabeths in the same month and in the same place being two different couples.
