Primary events

Some aspects of Matthew Bayfield's life. We have an intriguing situation. In 1758 Mary SCOTT of Runton married William CUSTANCE. Matthew BAYFIELD was a witness, and as he hales from Runton, I assume he was there on behalf of Mary. Matthew was married to Susanna ABBS at the time. Susannah died in Nov 1764, and Matthew and Mary SCOTT married Oct 1765. They had a child Chr 10 months later. Note that the date in free reg transcription is incorrect. It is understandable that the year was thought to be 1765, but close inspection of entries above and below shows 1766 as definite

The marriage was in Wiveton, and is not recorded correctly. They are both recorded (correctly) as widowed. The marriage is by banns, but I doubt they were living there at the time. Neither the bride not the groom signed the form, and there is only 1 witness, a William RAYNER, who witnessed many marriages in the parish. The church must have been in a very small parish. The previous marriage was 1 year earlier, and the next one was 3 months later.

I checked the Banns book, only 10 pages for 60 years. It is there, and Matthew is noted as being from Runton - Mary from Wiveton - The banns were read 1st, 8th and 15th September.

DNA Research Notes

Research note Re DNA test(s): You have a gedcom at GEDmatch. I have only just got my results from Ancestry and have uploaded to ftdna and gedmatch.

I am searching the gedcoms for known names, and I came across this. 2016-11-14 00:12:23 dragunfli2000@rogers.com 4321641 : P399 Doily ( Doyly) Scott Bayfield, b. 1769, Norfolk, England, d. , FATHER: Doily ( Doyly) Scott Bayfield , MOTHER: ??

Matthew BAYFIELD b 1723 in West Beckham is the one at the top of your tree I think. He is the 6th GGF of the ex husband of my cousin. I research her family as well.

If you wish I can pass your email on to my cousin, we are in constant touch, even though we live a world away from each other.

I have parents for Matthew - his Chr.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: May have been apprenticed in Runton to Robert STRANGLEMAN cordwainer 1740-1744 - see exhibit, which shows the village as Bunton, but as there is no village by that name in Norfolk, and there was a Robert STRANGLEMAN in Runton having children at this time, I believe we have the correct apprenticeship.
