245 years ago today

My 4x great grandparents, Adam Carr and Jane Nesbitt, were married on 6 June 1767 at Longbenton in Northumberland.

That makes this “xxx years ago today” post among my oldest events. Jane was a Longbenton lass and Adam was from Belford so I cannot help wondering what made him travel 47 miles south and marry a girl from there. Whatever the reason, I am glad he did :)

I wonder what they would have made of how far their descendants are scattered around the world. Doubt if they even knew where Norway is.

One of millions of Smiths

Just added a page under My Family to start collecting Smith relatives. I have found one so far in my direct line, but do have a several more scattered around various branches of the tree. My 3x great grandmother Rachael Smith 1785 married Caleb Carr in Longbenton in Northumberland in 1808.
