A marriage record (transcribed at FreeReg, and listed in Nottinghamshire Parish Registers vol 4 p163 (Phillimore and Blagg, 1902)) exists of the marriage of Henry Carpendale and Catherine Palfreman on 25 February 1753 in St Mary, Newark, Nottinghamshire. It is likely that these two records refer to the same event - no parish record corresponding to the marriage licence is found, and no licence corresponds to this marriage (although it could have been by banns). Two data discrepancies exist - the year and the groom's first name. The marriage occurred less than two years after the conversion from Old Style dates to New Style dates, and my interpretation is that the central license record, which has the New Style equivalent, is likely correct while the parish record records the event using the Old Style year. This is validated by the fact that this marriage is listed after marriages occurring in December 1753. Regarding the groom's first name, I note that the three Carpendale baptisms in the parish after the marriage (Thomas, Elizabeth and Ann) both list George Carpendale as the father (mother not listed), then Catharine, Sarah and Rebecca are all the children of George and Catherine. No children of any Henry Carpendale are found. For this reason I believe that the groom in this marriage was George Carpendale, and that Henry is a transcription error somewhere along the line.

Children: Notes: In January 1754, just over a month before her marriage to George Carpendale, Catherine sold three messuages in Mill Gate, Newark, to Rev. Bernard Wilson for £81. These properties were in the tenure of William Drury, Samuel Hutchinson and Widow Johnson. In the lease documents, Catherine is described as "spinster of Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, the only surviving daughter and heir of Richard Palfreyman, deceased." Sources:

Elizabeth Palfreyman

Baptism: 26 December 1720, in St Mary, Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, England

Father: Richard Palfreyman

Mother: Catherine (Parker) Palfreyman

Notes: Elizabeth may have died young as in lease documents signed in January 1754, her sister Catherine is described as "the only surviving daughter and heir of Richard Palfreyman, deceased."

Mary Palfreyman

Baptism: 31 December 1691, in St Mary, Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, England

Father: William Palfreyman

Mother: Elizabeth (Pacy) Palreyman

Notes: Mary was possibly a twin of her brother, Richard. The two children were baptised on the same date. She probably died young as another daughter of William's was baptised Mary in 1694.

Mary Palfreyman

Baptism: 30 March 1694, in St Mary, Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, England

Richard Palfreyman

Baptism: 31 December 1691, in St Mary, Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, England

Father: William Palfreyman

Mother: Elizabeth (Pacy) Palreyman

Married: Catherine Parker on 5 November 1717, in St Mary, Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire, England

Children: Occupation: Cordwainer

Will: dated 19 November 1734, with a secondary date, perhaps the date the will was proved, of 12 April 1735. If so, this would place Richard's death in 1734/5. In any event, we know that he died before January 1854, when a lease transaction performed by his daughter Catherine describes her as"the only surviving daughter and heir of Richard Palfreyman, deceased."

Mar. lic. 5 Feb. 1689-90, William Palfreyman of Newark, cordwainer, and Elizabeth Pacy of Norton, spinster.

Children: Occupation: Cordwainer

Notes: Two baptisms in Newark in the 1660's are strong candidates for William's baptism. On 3 December 1665, a William Palfryman was baptised in Newark, the son of William Palfryman, and on 2 April 1668, a William Palfreman was baptised the son of William Palfreman.

Death: possibly in 1712. The Nottinghamshire Archives catalogue contains a reference to the "Admon and Bond of William PALFREYMAN alias WAND of Newark, Shoemaker dated 18/08/1712"
