I am researching Mary (Mally) ARMITAGE, born approximately 1781, Almondbury parish, Yorkshire (West Riding), England. She married James KAYE on 13 July 1801, Almondbury parish. Neither of the couple signed their names, they made a mark and the marriage was witnessed by 2 churchwardens. I would like to hear from anyone who might know of Mary ARMITAGE, her actual birth or parentage. I have only recently broken through a brickwall to discover her existance in my family tree. She is my g.g.g. grandmother. Also, does the lack of a relative signing the register at the ceremony have any significance? Their first child was born 29 Dec 1802 (at least the first one I've found). Doesn't seem to be a shotgun wedding.
