Family search - "probably married one of the following people"


Active member
I've been using the family search website and have found it great, but I'm a little confused as I've found marriage records that say for example:

Nellie Lees probably married one of the following people:

Edward Henry Thornton (who I know she did marry)
Norman Thomas Weatherly
Annie Maria Wilson

I've found this several times, does anyone know what these extra names are all about? Especially as often they include a woman's name - were they the witnesses?

Any info would be gratefully appreciated!

Thanks :)
