U.S. and International Marriage Records

The arms of Deacon of Hemel Hempstead were, A chevron treillisse' betwen three roses. Crest: a demi eagle.
This family has been of considerable note in Hertfordshire, deriving descent from Richard Deacon of Wyndruge, Hertfordshire, who died 1496, and whose three sons were in the service of the Crown, the elder as Secretary to Elizabeth of York, consort to Henry VII, and the other two in the military service.
Their uncle Michael was Bishop of St. Asaph.

Brian, thanks for the links to the images of info about Thomas Deacon. I really appreciate such sharing. They look like they're scans from a book(s). What is the name of the book or books, author, date, etc.? Wondering, too, if you still have the original; the first image is missing both the page number as well as the footnote reference. The second image has an "ibid" reference at the bottom of the page; it would be helpful to know the source it's referring to. Again, many thanks.

As for "U.S. and International Marriage Records" as a source, here's what Ancestry.com says about this source:

This unique collection of records was extracted from a variety of sources including family group sheets and electronic databases. Originally, the information was derived from an array of materials including pedigree charts, family history articles, querie[s].

Unfortunately, it draws only from derivative sources-- no original sources, so please use with caution.


Sorry for the Delay...

The source of the artacles was directly from Ancestry.com and attached to this individual within 4 profiles. None of them state a source.

The rest of the information was also from Ancestry.com. They are from actual data sources as a metadata type listing and certified as from "source information" within Ancestry's catalog database.

I certify personally that all the information i provided are reliable but, when it comes to the artacles i provided (via my google drive link), i can only state that they were uploaded by 1 individual in their tree on their profile and a few others attached a copy on their tree also.

I hope they all help in your search :o)
