I am told that Margaret Matchet married John Mackley and they lived in Owthorpe in Nottinghamshire.
Their daughter Margaret was christened in 1767 so the marriage was before then (I guess)
Margaret Matchet died in 1810 and is presumed to have been born in 1733.
I dont know where she came from, but Leicestershire isnt so far away from Owthorpe.
I havent seen many Matchet's on the net (with or without the extra "t")
I wouldnt be surprised to see a connection
