    Married 30 Oct 1794  Howe with Little Poringland, Norfolk Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    • From David Booty, November 2008: ... unexpected discovery, found while transcribing the Howe with Little Poringland AT’s for FreeREG:

      Thomas BUTY of this parish Bachelor & Susanna MINTER of the same were married in this Church by Banns this thirtieth Day of October, in the year one thousand seven hundred & ninety four by me Thomas BARLING Rector

      This marriage was solemnized between us Thomas BUTY X his mark Susanna BUTY (sic)

      In the presence of William PILGRIM X his mark Thomas FEEK X his mark

      As Thomas could not read or write, and neither of them came from Howe, it is not surprising his name was spelled wrongly.
