I have a marriage of a Richard Whitehead in 1807 in wrockwardine. Would anyone know please, is there a way of finding out whether he was a widower at time of this marriage in 1807. I've had this marriage for a long time and ive searched what I can find online, I suspect he may have been but can't find proof.
Thank you

Hi Susie, There are two possible earlier marriages for a Richard Whitehead listed on FMP. And two possible death's for the possible first wife of Richard.

See below.

Best Regards
