  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Northern Ireland - BDMs

  15. Married. At 15?

    I have found a burial record for a 15 year old girl who died/was buried in 1876. In the slot for 'Occupation' it says "M.W.". I'm fairly sure this must mean "Married woman." Is this possible/likely at 15? She was Protestant if that makes a difference.
