K-F marriage offspring

  1.  John Kingsley and Mary Furrian
    1. John bapt. 29 Apr 1781 “Elder son” … “Peggy Kingsley his wife”
      1. Married Peggy Barber of Pirton on 9 September 1803 at the fashionable St George Hanover Square Church in London by licence.  In the affidavit of the same day John Kingsley stated both were over 21 and he was living in the parish of St George Hanover Square.  This was a lie as he was living in Pirton.  In marriages by licence rather than banns the bridegroom’s residence is expected to be incorrect.  Maybe they were not keen to be married by banns at their local church in Pirton as their first child was born less than two months later.

    9. Charles born 1 October 1793, bapt. 23 July 1795. “My son” and one of John’s executors.
      1. married by licence stating on 7th June 1815 that Charles was of the parish of St James Clerkenwell, London and minor, 17 year old Ann King of Pirton intended to marry with her father, John King’s permission. Although Lord Hardwicke’s marriage Act of 1753 did stop the widespread abuse of the marriage by licence system, this could have been an irregular marriage.  As Ann was a minor the couple may not have wanted to have a marriage by banns in Pirton where their families and neighbours could have objected to the marriage.  By going to London a parson could have nodded through that he was living in Clerkenwell.  Marrying by a licence only needed an affidavit by Charles, and one wonders if the statement by the parson that he had spoken to Ann’s father, and his signature should be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt.
