18th Jan 1764

abt. 7 o'Clock at Night Bought Licence of the Revd. Mr Edward Chapell to be married with Miss Elizabeth Newton Daughter of Samuel & Elizabeth Newton Gunsmith in Nottingham and cost me £1.4s6d Her father went w me for the Licence.

At last! Thomas really doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get married, does he?

Edward Chappell was the Rector of St Peter's Nottingham from 1725 until his death in 1767. There is a monument to him in the church and you can see it on the church's website.
