I found the following details at the site below.
But I cannot verify William Harvey's marriage to Judith Musk on any other site, or on any of the parish registers I searched at SOG.
The site moderator has not answered the email I sent 2 weeks ago, via the site.
He added the details back in 2008

How certain are you of :

1: Her surname was actaully Musk (this is quite an unusual surname and could easily be mis-transcribed ie Mask, Husk, Hask etc)

2: The they ever married

Hi PigletsPal,
Not at all sure about the MUSK name, hence the question, There are MUSK families in Suffolk, But I cannot find a Judith.
Thanks Margee, We have already verified Charity's details.

Thanks BeverleyW,
I have to admit that I haven't used that site to search for a while.

Now if I could just find her marriage to William Harvey I would be a happy camper.
I did think I had found him in a Parish register as the child of Robert and Lydia Harvey, but that wWilliam died a ta few months old. And there is no mention of another William.

I'll just keep on looking

Another thought - depending on her age when marrying William is it possible she had been married before hence no Harvey/Musk marriage?

Good though PigletsPal, and a direction well worth looking into
Thanks

If she's the girl who was christened in 1783, she would have been around 20 when she married and 21 when she had Charity. Not impossible but there's not much room for a previous marriage.

Wow, that is excellent, Thanks BeverleyW and Chris
I didn't know about that site.
The amazing Genes community have done it again.
All I can say is thank you so much, and hope that one day I will be able to play it forward.
