Hi Dawn Nothing on the Covell/Carnell marriage, but as you've got the date etc, why don't you apply for the marriage certificate? It will give you the fathers' names and occupations - another step backwards!! Penny

Hi Penny, Thanks for the look-up . In response to your question~John HAWKER was born in Somerset, possibly Combe St Nicholas Chard, to James and Mary Hawker around 1815. Mary Ann Harris was born in Devon ? Britford according to 1841 census. James HAWKER born Wadeford c. 1786, SOM, Mary born Chaffcombe, Som. c1780 Marion
