Missing Marriages!
checking the Parish registers at the Essex Record Office has led me to some Marriages in Wethersfield parish that do not appear in the GRO Marriage index!
When the chuch of St Mary the Virgin was opened at Blackmore End in 1867 it appears a page was removed from the Wethersfield Parish Register and used to record a couple of marriages prior to the church's own register being opened in July 1868. For some reason these Marriages do not appear in the GRO Index ....

The marriages are as follows ---
18 October 1867 .
John Hurry - full - Wid - Laborer - Wethersfield - John Hurry - Labourer .
Elizabeth Fitch - full - Wid - BLANK - Wethersfield - John Freeman - Labourer .
Witnesses Rose Cornell and William (Fitch or French) .

25 December 1867 .
Charles Rumsey - 20 - Bach - Labourer - Wethersfield - William Rumsey - Labourer .
Ellen Warren - 17 - Spin - BLANK - Gosfield - John Warren - Labourer .
Witnesses William Smith and Mary Rush .

I hope that helps someone!
