King, John

JOHN KING 1753-1824
CURRENT TEXT "Although they lived as husband and wife for forty years it does not appear that they married."
SUGGESTED CHANGE <They married at St Chad Shrewsbury on 4 January 1790, when her son Augustus Butler was a witness.>
FURTHER AMENDMENT John King's death date should be August 1823 not August 1824. See Gents Mag Feb 1824 p184 and Morning Chronicle 23.8.1823
