I'm trying to find the marriage of John Rowles and Lucy ?? John was born about 1823, I think in Kingston, Surrey. His daughter, Grace Lucy was born in Kingston, about 1858 and she married John Burnman Okey (sometimes Oakey) in 1883.

Thanks.

Just wondering if John wasn't free to marry Lucy because wife Susannah was still living?

She claims to be a Widow.
