Confusion of Spouse
Can anyone solve this puzzle for me. John Barfield born c 1830 Oakham married an Eliza from Stamford, Lincs born c 1826 ( see 1851 & 1861 censuses). According to familysearch.org John Barfield married Eliza Lockwood Isitt in 1850 at Oakham Rutland. However the free BMD entry shows that John Barfield married Q2 1850 Oakham 15 1095 to 1 of 4, the only eliza being Eliza Stimpson. Meanwhile Q2 1850 Oakham 15 1105 records that Eliza Lockwood Isitt married 1 of 4 but no Barfield or even a John in sight. I have tried to find a connection between Isitt and Stimpson in case there had been a previous marriage but to no avail. According to famsearch Eliza Lockwood Isitt was born c 1826 Stamford. Also there is a Eliza Stimpson christened 3rd August 1828 in Stamford. Anyone throw any light on the subject? Who did John Barfield marry? Was Eliza Lockwood Isitt the same person as Eliza Stimpson Many thanks for any clarification.
