Visiting Kent a few years ago I found the baptisms of my 2nd gt-grandfather's children in East Sutton between 1816 & 1837, but no sign of his marriage - he is THOMAS TOWN, his wife's name, SARAH. Has anyone come across them? Or others of the Town family? I'd like a clue as to where to start looking for the marriage.

If they survived until the 1851 census, you'd know where they claimed to be born (particularly Sarah) - her birthplace might be a good place to start looking for the marriage.

"Sarah Do Wife M 66 [born] Do Harrietsham"
Thank you. Harrietsham is where I'd suggest starting to look for the marriage. If unsuccesful, other parishes in the vicinity.

Thank you for your work in my behalf - sorry its been so long - life intervened!! This is great - I know they had a son Edward. He was baptised in e. sutton in 1828 but may not have been a baby. Anyway ages on censuses are not terribly reliable are they? I will now start to look for the Harrietsham connection. Bless you!
