Found this online rootsweb. Hope it helps!


Hello all,


I have two marriages that I'm having a bit of a problem with;


1) William Steventon marrying Sarah Blackham, 1 Jul 1816 at Rowley Regis - is anyone able to find the bann for this? I'd like to know if there's anything more I can find out about these two other than where they were married and the date (e.g. William's occupation, where they were from, etc.)


2) Benjamin Steventon marrying Phebe (Phoebe/Pheobe) - these were William Steventon's parents (I think). I do not know the date of the marriage, although it is likely to have occurred in Oldbury or the surrounding area (based on their children's baptisms that I have found so far). Their children (that I have found so far); Nanny (born 3 Nov 1787, bap 9 Dec 1787 at Oldbury), Ann (born 1788 at Oldbury, died 1832, buried at Oldbury), James (born 1792 at Birmingham, died 1834 at Oldbury), and William (born abt 1796 at Rowley Regis, bap 30 Sep 1796 at Oldbury).


Any help with this would be great,

Many thanks, Holly.
