1: Richard, Mary Ann and both witnesses signed their own names to the marriage register.
2: With both Richard and Mary Ann being minors at the time of their marriage they would have needed their parents' permission to marry.
3: As their first child was born about a month after they married, it would seem that Mary Ann would have been heavily pregnant on their wedding day.
4: Richard Stacey's occupation, lighterman, was a man working on small cargo boats, called lighters.
