interesting marriage capers

Mundane or propane:

Victim: John Swanton 1827-1882
Circumstance: Whom do we suspect of courting the schoolmistress? Julia Pennyís mother kept school at the Old Mansion, Charlton Horethorne. John's siblings were at school in the village 1851. He rode there with them, I think and thatís how he met Julia.
Origin of this story: 1851 census; History of Charlton Horethorne by Robert Williams
