Can’t find a marriage

Postby Katykat » Fri May 31, 2019 7:19 am

I have Richard Edward Reeves 1808, parents Robert 1773 and Susannah. They were married in Strood Kent in 1772. Roberts parents listed as William and Elizabeth. I can’t find any more details about William. Robert was born in Bethersden Kent. I have a Charles 1777 and a William 1779 both have parents William and Elizabeth but born in different places so I can’t say for sure if these are the same family. I don’t even know if William or Elizabeth originate from Kent. Any help to break the deadlock would be appreciated.

It is very hard to "prove" the further back you go unless you have records to confirm it.
Wealthy families you may have more luck?
Going back as far as you have is brilliant.
Sometimes the tree ends as far as records go...no point climbing the wrong tree.
