  Marriage Notes:

Marriage to Ann Margaret Hubert spinster (she was 18) at St Mary, Battersea. One of the witnesses was James Hubert, the other Josh Abberly. He must be the clerk as I note he is recorded thus as witness to the marriage of James George Hubert on your information. My spelling did not have an e. There are dozens of Abberly in Battersea. PR
