Thanks to Marilyn P, I now know the date of my 3g grandfather's marriage in 1777. Any chance with my 4g grandfather's marriage?: John GIBSON to Dorothy ??? about 1754 possibly in the Gretton area. Thanks in advance.

There is a marriage on 30 March 1752 at Wilbarston of a John GIBSON of Dean and a Dorothy PLAT of Wilbarston - any good??

Thanks Janet.

This looks like the right one as the Gibson "clan" appears to move around this area of Northamptonshire & Dorothy was not a very common name at this time. I found an elder daughter Ann who was born to Edward & Dorothy in August 1753 in Gretton which fits nicely with the 1752 marriage.

I will now take a trip to Northamptonshire Record Office to confirm and hopefully expand this line.
