24th May 1757
Tuesday Mr Mettam was married to Miss Frances Thompson Nottingham
IGI tells me that Mr Mettam's name was Thomas and they were married at St Mary's Church
20th June 1757
Monday Charles Drury was married to Miss Bettison Nottingham
Once again I must resort to IGI. The bride's name was Sarah and the wedding took place in St Nicholas Church
This story has a sad ending. Thomas has added later
News Came 26th December 1766 Chas. Drury was Drownded near Dublin Left a widow and 4 children and she bigg with child.
And, just to show you that Thomas continues with his meticulous record of spending...
Bout a bottle of Limical Drops for Scurvy. 3/6
(I've always said that Thomas doesn't eat enough fruit and veg!)
