Advent Calendar - Christmas Sweethearts

A post for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

In my own family tree I have one Christmas marriage - Thomas Henry (aka Henry Thomas) CRUTCH and Elizabeth Verdy GARDINER were married on Christmas Day 1902 at St Marys in Datchet, Buckinghamshire. Their marriage lasted 25 years, until Elizabeth's death on New Year's Eve 1927, and produced two sets of twins amongst their nine children.

Up in Wing there are some Christmas marriages as well:

Isaac CHESHIRE and Jane GREEN - 1809
Charles COOK and Sophia CAPP - 1840
William DIMOCK and Esther BACKUS - 1843
Henry FOSTER and Mary BANDY - 1846

Happy anniversary to all our Christmas Sweetheart couples!
