    Richard James Snelson has several queries here. He wonders whether 101 Boughton is the same address, and whether "Place" could be "Court" ? My view is that this would be unlikely in 1881, when the quality of recording the census was quite good. I think Richard is probably right in conjecting that James' wife's maiden name might have been Mary Chapman.

Main Events

  • Marriage: Hugh Stockden and Mary Ford were married on 2 February 1601 in St Thomas the Apostle, London.1
  • Burial: Hugh's remains were buried on 8 September 1603 I am sure these two records say that Hugh Stockden was a "dier" or "dior" ... which would suggest that Mary did indeed mary Roger Snelson after Hugh Stockden died - as they were both dyers in the same district.2,3
