Hi Lynette; No luck so far on Thomas Watson. Do you know what year he was married and to who? Sometimes the name of the parents is listed on the marriage. I have check for marriages in Bucks for around the time of Thomas' birth but the closest marriage to that time is 1822. Another alternative is if you know the names of any of Thomas's siblings, maybe we could do a sibling search. Let me know

Hi Siobhan; The British Vital Records index has 12.5 million records from 1530 through to 1906. Some counties have far more records than others. Of the 12.5 million, only just under 2 million are marriages.
