Part 62s - Three Marriages - 1825 & 1832 - Smith. Steele, & Ventour

15 September 2009


I planted some chrysanthemums this afternoon... just before the afternoon downpour.

And the search is continuing. Ggg-grandfather James Smith's Last Will and Testament from Part 61s has me checking out my stash of files and documents. I NEED to get organized! The wealth of the information is fantastic and I know that there are some clues hidden away, between some lines, that I may have missed the first time.

Today I've got three Marriage Registrations:
  1. 16 Sep 1825 - Gg-grandaunt Sophia Smith and Benjamin Ventour,
  2. 11 Dec 1832 - Ggg-grandfather James Smith and Ggg-grandmother Mary Ann Doret, and
  3. 15 Dec 1832 - Gg-grandaunt Mary Ann Smith and George Steele

I've updated the James Descendant Chart again, to reflect the new, and of course corrected information. Please remember that the Descendant Chart is always a work in progress.

As you refer back to ggg-grandfather James' Last Will and Testament in Part 61s, you will notice that all of these names appear in the body of the text.

Here are my attempts at the transcriptions --

1. 16 September 1825 - Gg-grandaunt Sophia Smith and Benjamin Ventour



Benjamin Ventour and Sophia Smith, were joined together in the Holy State of Matrimony on the 16th day of September 1825, by virtue of a License.

It should be noted that this copy is actually of a transcription from the actual Parish register. Two of 20 items, or chapters, in the microfilm are images of the pages of a portion of the register which were transcribed and signed.
