St Andrew, Endfield 1760.....

Mark Turner son of Simon and Johanna Turner. He is on the IGI along with his siblings and I'm trying to find his parent's marriage.

I can't stop saying wow either, Val. I've found so much stuff on there, and yesterday I found a first cousin 3 times removed who I'd never heard of before, who turns out to have emigrated to New Zealand and had a street named after him! I haven't even started looking at the unindexed stuff yet.

I've been quietly rejoicing in my little cubbyhole too. Found a number of my reprehensible Goulds replicating away, all thinking of themselves as 'gentlemen'....i.e. 'no occupation.'

*wonders how their poor wives paid the milkman?*

The one that made me laugh was my 4xg-uncle's marriage certificate, where he gave his father's occupation as "Esquire"!

I'm still wondering how a chap whose occupation is 'butler' can claim his still-living father (witness) as 'gentleman'?

On closer inspection he turns out to be a Glazer with swirly handwriting
