red mail Benjamin beal born 19 sept 1791
Looking for anyone able to solve this little riddle. I have an ancestor benjamin beal, born 19 sept 1791, supposedly in cuckfield. Here is my riddle. He got married to Harriet Flint 10 nov 1813 in cuckfield and was baptised 16 sept 1819. At no point did he reveal his parents! When I saw the adult baptism, I immediately thought that the person marrying them might have required it, but I then discovered he married before the baptism.
