Assuming they married in Buckinghamshire, and assuming Jill's birth date for Charles of 1824 is correct-ish, there are two marriage records between 1840 and 1865. I haven't tried to find out which of these women these Charles Carters married, though!

Freebmd have mistranscribed one of the page numbers. No way of knowing which


Potty Report 21 Jul 2013 10:41

Checking the images for the 1847 marriage, the page number is correctly transcribed for Charles Carter; the one for Mary Ann looks like 502 but freebmd notes that the page no should be between 567 and 610, so 502 is probably wrong. But you only need details of one person to order a cert.

Both the entries have been added after the original compilation of the index.

The 1847 Mary Ann Young marriage is the same one transcribed on Familysearch and posted earlier
