    Thomas was called on a mission to England just as the ship was departing, and needed to remove his personal items from the ship before it departed. He did not actually go at this time.

      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?
