I have in my tree a predicament....

Richard Robertson/Robinson marries Sarah Watchorn in 1818 in Melton Mowbray, he a widow (and a Miller) she a spinster they have children together, and he dies in 1840 :rolleyes: (Sarah subequently dies in 1860) I have certs for both deaths. His children (4 Girls) I have tracked and they seem to either die early or be elusive in finding their deaths.

From the PR's Richards marriage to Sarah states he was 'Of Waltham' however I have checked Waltham on the wolds pr's and his birth isnt there OR even his first marriage.

I have been stuck at this point for a while now, his age at death was 52 which gives a rough DOB as 1788.

Today I recieved my leicestershire marriage cd :)

whilst having a nosey through it, I found a marriage (well several, but were way too early..) this one, sorta fits the bill.

Richard Robinson p. of St. Mary Nottm, & Elizabeth Newby in Hoby in 1809.

now am I reading too much into this? could he be my Richard? (as he would be 21 when married in 1809.)
