You've probably investigated this before, Merry, but on FreeReg there is a marriage between

Isaac Sage and Elizabeth Collyer
12 May 1799
St Michael Bath

It's also given as a submitted entry on the IGI.

I don't think FreeREG had been invented the last time I looked hard at George's parents, so thanks for that Elizabeth!! lol The problem is how to confirm anything? There are 1000s of Sages in Somerset

George's baptism is on Free Reg. It says that Isaac is a Collier, which I wouldn't have expected if he had died!

There are two George Sages - one born c. 1815, one c. 1816, which could be very confusing!

As long as only one has father Isaac? (mine said his dad was Isaac, a postman, on his marriage cert, but as that was a modern day transcript by the local registrar, I've often wondered if that occ is right?)

Maybe he was a post man (to do with mining?) rather than a letter deliverer?
