    Banns of marriage From 11 Sep 1774 to 25 Sep 1774 
    • From register entry (image on FMP, viewed 20 Jul 2019)
    Married 20 Feb 1776  St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, Stockbury, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location  [3

      It is interesting that the marriage took place so long after the banns were read - about 18 months later. (were the banns still valid? - to be checked) Mary was a minor and Richard seems to have been some years older so perhaps her parents did not consent at first. She was still a minor when they did marry, but being about 6 months pregnant at the time perhaps further resistance seemed hopeless. It seems unlikely that they would have been too bothered about her being pregnant and not married - her mother had an illegitimate child and then was about six months pregnant with another when she did marry, and two of Mary's sisters went on to  have 3 illegitimate children between them, and one was also about 6 months pregnant at marriage.
