You know the feeling......you find something that's been a bit of a mystery. In my case it was a marriage between a Martha King and a Thomas Honnor.

Hedgerley, Buckinghamshire. 26 Jun 1753.
Martha King of Bucknell, Oxfordshire. Thomas Honnor, Farmer of Great Missenden. by Licence.

The Marriage Bond/Licence confirms ages at time of marriage.

Found Martha Kings, 11th May 1730 baptism(d.o.b 3rd May) in Bucknell to Richard & Mary King, but no sign of a baptism for Thomas Honnor, even though the kiddies are baptised at Gt. Missenden.

Thomas(d1783), & Martha(d1795) were buried at Gt. Missenden.....no age given. No Will or Probate in the Bucks Archives. So the burials are a bit of an educated guess, but no others come close to being correct.

I guess I shouldn't be such a whinging Pom really, but some days I want to whinge.:2fun::2fun:
