Note: This record indicates that William applied to marry an Elizabeth Blond who was a free settler who had arrived on board the "Duchess of Northumberland". Blond could be a mistranscription of Blanch, but her arriving on the "Duchess of Northumberland" and not the "Maitland" is interesting.

Text:

The ML at the end of the Marriage Index entry indicates that the marriage was conducted according to the rights of the Church of England at Alnwick, Butterwick, Clarence Town, Middlehope, Raymond Terrace or Seaham.

Note: It appears that William and Elizabeth had many children. Hopefully I can get back to adding them sometime.
