    • No marriage found for a John Howell to a Jane anywhere in Wiltshire.
      Widened the search and the ONLY John and Jane to be found was the date given for Rotherhithe.
      John was born in Bermondsey and Jane in Chelsea which are 5 miles apart.
      Rotherhithe is a bit further away but reasonable to assume this marriage is correct.
      But what made them move to Wiltshire?
      And it's this question that makes me wonder if I have got the right couple.


      Update by Paul: 19 Aug 2018
      I don't have access to any of the paid research tools such as Ancestry or FMP any more so it's not easy to look for some of the personal records.

      My thoughts go immediately to employment. Do you know what their trades were?

      For instance I recall cases where women in service in the bigger London houses would be moved between London and country residences.

      Was he involved in agriculture? Because the sprawl of London would have been pushing out into the farmland around London, causing a decline in farming jobs in London whilst, conversely, by the late 18th C., primary (land based) occupations in Wiltshire were surging ahead of secondary (manufacturing.)
