  • Name Mary James 
    • There is a transcribed record that has her father listed as William Morris. I ordered the original record to confirm, and it says William James. I don't know if Morris is a database or transcription error, or what it is. Whatever the case is, unless further evidence arises pointing to this as legitimate, I consider the Morris question dead and have removed the name from the record.

      There are several things that substantiate this as the correct record despite some of the inconsistencies.

      - Samuel's last name (Predy) could easily be a phonetic spelling which was common at the time.
      - Mary's name is exactly the same.
      - Mary's father's first name is what is expected.
      - The marriage date is precisely correct.
      - The city is correct (Gloucester, England)

      All together, the preponderance of evidence implies this is the correct record with some interesting tid-bits of additional information.

      - Is Morris her father's middle name, or last name?
      - Is Predy how their name was spelled in England, and thus the genealogical dead end?
