In Ireland, but from Bucks.
I watched an old Law and Legal Tv programme, whch I recorded, called Garrows Law. A case involving a Joseph Hamer(real name, Thomas Hardy).

The actual cases are based on real events, that occured in London.

Thomas Hardy was charged with Treason in 1794. and was aquiitted.

He apparently married the daughter of a man called Priest. The name of the daughter is unknown. This woman was apparently from Chesham, Buckinghamshire.

They had 6 Children, who all died in infancy. He was a shoemaker, who set up shop in Picadilly. The last chiild dies in 1794.

Thomas Hardy was buried in 1832, at Bunfields in Islington, London.

Can anyone find the marriage of Thomas Hardy, to a Ms. Priest. I would guess it was 6 to 10 years, before death of last child. Therefore c1784 ish.

Just need the brides Christian name, if possible, or any possible baptisms of children, which may reveal her christian name.

Thanks for looking.
