Hi all
Is there anywhere I can see either banns or details of a marriage here in 1840? I have names and dates but am trying to establish if the bride used her maiden name or married name and was a widow. To clarify - my ggg grandad's mother Sarah Clark married John McAllister in 23/8/1840. Wanting to know was Clark her maiden or married name?
IGI doesn't say, no listing for the marriage on Lancs OPC and UKBMD only has "Clark" - no alternate name. This makes me believe my ggg grandad James was illegitimate and his "dad" on his marriage cert was fabricated??
Cheers
Karen
