In Response To: Re: BENSON Maughold ()

special licence has nothing to do with age of paties - it allows a marriage to be performed out of the parish of residence of either party. The register would state if either was a minor though sometimes a couple of months discrepancy is not noted - a special licence would I'm sure provoke the minister or clerk to check on ages.

I suspect the Wm was born in England and brought over as a child.
