While spending a few days “sleuthing” at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, I did find one small thing that I had over looked – the marriage of my great, great grandparents, Richard and Hannah RICHARDSON. I found in “Pollets’ Index” that they had married on 5 April 1829, at Norwood, Middlesex.
However, I did not really need to go all the way to Salt Lake City to find this, as it is online at Ancestry.com. Now I need to send the information on this index card and obtain the actual marriage record, which may have additional information on it, such as witnesses, etcetera, which may reveal clues to the parents of Richard and his wife, Hannah DENNIS. I already know that Hannah was from Mortlake, Surrey. Richard was born in London, so he said, and I have no idea which parish.
