Marriages Witnessed

27/01/1827 Marriage of James Divehall and Mary Sales, Bromley, Kent
Note: because marriage records do not indicate the relationship of the witnesses to the bride and groom, this list represents likely involvement of the individual on the basis of a name match.

Did You Know?

  • Sarah Sales died in Southend in Lewisham in 1856. The informant was a Mary Divall; I think this was most likely to be Sarah's sister Mary Sales, whose marriage to James Divehall Sarah and her husband Thomas Upton had witnessed in 1827 and who had been living in Southend since at least 1829. (Mary did have a daughter Mary Divall but she would have been only 10 at the time.) Thomas's sister Louisa Waters had been living at White Foot Lane in South End in 1851.
