    1. [S188] Family Search - England Marriages, 1538–1973, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ((http://new.familysearch.org  )), entry for Henry TAPNER and Grace SHELLY, person ID NKBS-YB9. (Reliability: 3).
      Gives year as 1743. Entry on FamilySearch website. Prob OS date as most FamilySearch entries are, and another FS entry for the same marriage gives year as 1744.
      Both entries give Grace's surname as Shelly despite that being her maiden name and her having been married to Philip Newman. Need to see PR to confirm details.
