Frances Skeer


Frances was baptised in Pluckley on 24 August 1817, the daughter of Samuel and Sarah Skeer.

On 23 April 1836 she married Thomas Price Terry of Aldington at Bilsington parish church. The witnesses were William & Sarah Chambers. My guess is that Sarah was the sister of Thomas. Or perhaps they were just good friends.
