There's another marriage for a Thomas Fiddian and Elizabeth Mason in 1832. There are others that can be seen in the pictures.Some other details about the Bible include. The rear cover is detached, the front cover is still attached well but should be handled carefully. Appears to be in the original binding with a good bit of wear to the covers, but the detail and decoration on the covers is still very visible and in good condition. It's starting to wear away, but the page edges were clearly gold gilt. Contains the original marbled endpapers. Appears to be textually complete down to the original blank bedsheets.
This copy includes The Whole Book of Psalms collected into English metre, by Thomas Sternhold, John Hopkins, and others, conferred with the Hebrew. Oxford: Printed at the Theater in 1679.The binding has a bend in the spine as you can see in the pictures, however the Bible feels quite solid aside from the detached rear cover. The pages are very clean for the age. There are three instances of odd ciphers or shorthand writing that can be seen in the pictures. I'm not sure what this is or the reason for it. Overall, this Bible is in good condition for its age, especially considering how scarce of an edition this printing is.
