(Witness) Marriage20 January 1840James Cordner witnessed the marriage of Thomas Pattison and Louisa Cordner on 20 January 1840 at Houghton le Spring Church, Houghton le Spring, Co Durham, England; James b 1805 is the most likely candidate as a witness since James b 1774 was very old and probably in the workhouse by now.
The witness surname points to it being Louisa Cordner but the father's occupation is problematic since if Louisa's father was James(1774) the profession should be Publican whereas James(1806) is quarryman or mason not a labourer.12,13
