Continuing from Part 653am and my trek with the genealogy of the Aldridge Family Line, I have discovered a possibility that gggg-grandmother Mary Aldridge’s maiden name may have been Marsingale. This is a wee bit different from the Marsingate of which I first transcribed from the 1 June 1801 Marriage Registration.
I have been searching, via the Internet for the surname Marsingate and the pickings of connections are few and far between. Even though there is only a two-day discrepancy between the two sources 1 June versus 30 May, and the surname Marsingate versus Marsingale, there are considerable similaries that would lead me to believe that these two bits of information and data are specific to the same event – the 1801 Marriage of gggg-grandparents Thomas and Mary Aldridge.
Note, too, that the year indexed as gggg-grandmother Mary (née Marsingale) Aldridge is entered at 1780. This is a fair date provided.
I have also tweaked and sharpened my Aldridge Descendant Chart, as follows.
Now to wait for the actual FHL microfilm to compare the two documents.
