interesting marriage capers


Mundane or propane:

Victim: Mary Norris 1824-1904
Circumstance: Marrying for religion. On one issue John Hoskins’s wife would not budge – religion. She took her daughters to Pilton parish church despite John insisting that his sons be brought up in the Methodist way. When it came to matters immortal, she got her way. John and Mary Hoskins lie buried in the Church of England graveyard, of course.
Origin of this story: Conversation with Judy Tibbotts (a descendant)
