familysearch says alice born 1726

If you know when his children were born, you must have some sort of timescale for any marriage


Where did you get Alice's birth year info? It seems improbable, in view of the fact that she gave birth in 1747 (according to the tree on familysearch) Or was it a 'typo' on your part?

Could the marriage have taken place in a non-conformist church?


malyon Report 14 Apr 2019 19:45

perhaps they never married

says on familysearch alice born 1726

Thanks Maylon, yes got his children, but wondered whether he married away from Surrey.

Hi, I'm researching relative Henry Ridley, born Horne Surrey 1719. We know he married Alice, born c 1736, but we are having no luck finding her maiden name, or when they were married.
Any help appreciated.
Regards Maureen
