    • Slapton PRs show two marriages of a Christopher Prout, on the 2 dates shown. These 2 dates are not surprising; baptised, and almost certainly born, in 1726 this Christopher was the typical age at which young men married. In addition, his mother had died in 1751 and it was quite likely his father would remarry.
      What is strange is that both marriages are shown as to an Ann Lavers. This is certainly possible, and I think is more likely than not to be true, but it does strike me that there is an above average chance that there is an error in the register. Maybe an old note was hanging around and the same names actually written down twice instead of an entirely different couple on one (probably the second) occasion? Or the wrong brides name on the second occasion?
      (unfortunately no sign of the new style marriage register which should have been used from 1752, and which would have both made errors less liikely and have given more information)
