Note on Husband: Richard FAITH - shared note

1. The record of his marriage is taken from Michael Gandy's marriage index. The record is of Richard Faith batchelor of Denton to Anne Bass spinster of this parish by Banns in Wootton 16/2/1785. We know from the will of his mother that he was in Denton in 1810, so it seems safe to take this as the correct record.


2. The record of his burial in Denton in 1734 says that he was aged 73, which is also a confirmation that this is the right guy.


3. I haven't searched for his children, but some possibles have turned up.

i. Richard Faith of Denton, buried aged 28 in Denton 15/12/1813.
