Joan Quigley created the topic: Turner/ Hayward marriage 1779
Hello, My name is Joan Quigley and I live in Stoneham , Massachusetts. In going through some old papers in our historical society we came across a beautifully written on parchment tripart indenture from Bisley in 1779. It involves a marriage between a William Turner and Elizabeth Hayward. It also mentions a Nathaniel Rogers and Samuel Clissold as being involved. It's very difficult to read because of the repetitious legal jargon. We were wondering if this came into our possession from one of the descendants of those involved or if someone simply purchased it at some point at an antiquarian fair and gave it to the society. Do you have any information on the Turner/Hayward marriage? It would be nice if we could find a connection somehow. Thanks, Joan

Quite by chance I am checking the mss of a History of Througham before it goes for publication. William Turner married Elizabeth Hayward at All Saints Church Bisley on 14 September 1779. The Turners were landowners in Througham (just north of Bisley) and the Haywards associated with the cloth industry. Nathaniel Rogers also owned land in Bisley and Samuel Clissold was from another prominent land owning family in Througham. He may have been the Turner's tenant famer at Lower Througham Farm from 1781 to 1785.
The discovery of this indenture is remarkable and it woud be interesting to have more details.
