    • Record says with consent of parents. Peter was over 21, so don't know if this is the correct marriage. However Middleton Parish is very close to Radcliffe Parish so seems to be the best possibility.

The Rev A. George preached an excellent sermon on the occassion. In the course of which a review was taken of the deaths of distinguished persons during the Church's year, including those of the Czar of Russia, President Garfield, and the Earl of Beaconsfield, and some references were made to the death of Mr Mather.
