10th June 1793. Norris Scully married William English in the Parish of St Marylebone, Westminster.
Norris made an ‘x’ in the signature box; she was illiterate and could not sign her own name. They were married by Benjamin Lawrence, Curate.
This information was from a parish register. I couldn’t find anything more about this couple, but I hope they had a long and happy marriage. Norris seems an unusual name, especially for a woman. William has of course been a popular name for at least a thousand years!
