If two other census have Sussex and there is the birth reg then Sussex although I don't read that one as Sussex.

John H Farrer is the one in my tree.


Clearly an error in that marriage.

Marriages Mar Qtr 1884 Kensington 1a 8
FARRER Matthew George & HANBURY Caroline Rachel

Yes, wonder what is on the marriage certificate if you were to get a copy from BDM.

Not all the information is included and the certificates are different format to what is in the Church register.

I queried a NSW marriage because the date was not in the index and was told the date could not be read. Yet I downloaded an image of the marriage register and the date was easy to read.

Yeah, even some PR's differ from the BT's allegedly :eek:

Shall I send a copy of Matthew's church image?
