      Details from PR entry (image on FamilySearch)
      According to the entry Richard Loynd, aged 44, Bachelor, Shoemaker, abode Warrington, son of James Loynd, shoemaker
      married
      Margaret Towers, aged 18, Spinster, no occupation, abode Warrington, daughter of Daniel Towers, butcher
      Richard and Margaret made their marks, as did witnesses Andrew Collin and Elizabeth Casseday
      (neither Andrew nor Elizabeth were regular witnesses, not parish clerk, but probably friends or relations)

    Separated:
    • Richard and Margaret seem to have parted company before he was tried for bigamy in 1846 - possibly because of Margaret learning that she was not actually married to him, due to bigamy.
