    • John Weller was not exactly truthful in the allegation he signed as an application for his marriage licence. He claimed to be over 21 years old - but was closer to 19. He also stated that both his bride's parents were dead so she required no-one's consent. In fact, although her father had recently died, her mother was to live for another 17 years.
