Treasure Chest Thursday - 1788 Marriage of William Rich and Betty Noad in Trowbridge, Wiltshire

  It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1788 marriage entry for William Rich and Betty Noad in the Trowbridge, Wiltshire parish records:

The marriage entry is the first entry at the top of the page:

This is an entry in the Trowbridge, Wiltshire parish register.  It is an Original Source with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the marriage of William Rich and Betty Noad on 27 January 1788 in Trowbridge.  William Rich (1766-1835) was the son of Robert and May (Cook) Rich of Trowbridge, and Betty Noad (c1768-1814) was the probable daughter of William and Grace (Crabb) Noad of Trowbridge. 
William Rich (1766-1835) and Betty Noad (c1768-1814) are my 4th great-grandparents; they had at least 6 children, including my 3rd great-grandfather John Rich (1790-1868).
