Deciphering help please

Post by pinkshoes » Fri Mar 02, 2007 11:57 pm

I've just uploaded a marriage cert to the gallery, and (if it works) wonder if anyone can tell me where Peter Lawson was living at the time of his marriage please. It looks to me like Parish of Surinton, but I've no clue where that might be.

I think he might have been working in Shropshire at the time of his marriage, if so the parish would have been Burwarton. Any possibility of someone mis-hearing? Wishful thinking really, but any thoughts appreciated.

Parish of Swinton (Berwickshire)

All the best,

Ha! Thanks Andrew - once you know what it is, it can't possibly be anything else (if you see what I mean)!!!

Berwick makes sense, as his birthplace was Dunbar :roll:

Thanks again.
