An impossible date in history

William Foster marriage to Eleanor Huggard, 31 April 1837

William Foster marriage to Eleanor Huggard, 31 April 1837

Ok, now we’ve heard everything.  We all know about 29 February and leap year, however this is a new one . . .

On 31 April 1837 William Foster married Eleanor Huggard, both of Wickham Parish.  The date is written on the marriage certificate not once, but twice!  We guess Reverend Abraham Wood is entitled to a bad day like everyone else.

William and Eleanor are a bit elusive at the moment, however they do appear in the 1881 Census, both aged 65, Baptists, living in Saint John.
