Hardship Cases in a Portsmouth Court – Correction
HGS member David Hall has kindly pointed out an error in the original post I added to the website in October 2014. I had incorrectly stated that William Jeremiah ATRILL married Elizabeth GRIFFITHS on 2 July 1808. These details are correct but the William in the court case was a labourer who married Elizabeth THOMPSON in Alverstoke on 8 March 1807. Naval records with probate for William Jeremiah in 1826 confirmed he was a Purser on the survey ship Beagle and not a labourer. The complication arose through two sets of parents with the same names having children baptized in the same church following their marriages.
