Is someone able and willing to read 1614 English Marriage Record? [closed]

+5 votes

I appreciate any help with this one! This is the best image I could find of Edward Shene’s marriage record to Elizabetha Farrowe(?). He was the rector in Little Fransham, Norfolk, England when he married on 21 Nov 1614. I want to make sure I am not missing anything (he is a 10th great uncle). So far, I understand this:

Edrus Shene Rector....of FFransham.....Elizabetha Farrowe daughter of Henrici Farrow of Wendling......?

Thank you!

Looks like you've got most of the relevant information. Note that the marriage occurred at Wendling, rather than Little Fransham. I guess Edward decided to note it in his own register for posterity! Here's what I get from the record, I've added a few trivial words myself in square brackets to make it flow a little better:

Edward Shene, Rector [of] this church of Little Fransham, and Elizabeth Ferrow daughter [of] Henry Ferrow of Wendling, gent., were married [in] the parish church of Wendling aforesaid, twenty-first day [of the] month [of] November [1614].
