Notes about Witnesses

The names of Marriage Witnesses can sometimes be really useful when trying to work out who the Marriage partners are.
Witnesses might be siblings, parents or cousins.
They might be friends or workmates.
However, there were "professional witnesses" having no link with the couple. They might be Parish Clerks or Churchwardens.
