I'm trying to find sources for Benjamin Shelley, born circa 1742 and died about 1809. Married to Elizabeth Philips at Tunstall, Suffolk, UK on 7 May 1762. Father of Benjamin Shelley, born about 1779, he wed Anne Robinson.

Can anyone supply airtight sources, Please.

Thanks Lynda, but does Wiki recognise findmypast as a reliable source ? I'm never sure, so many sites, but are they all approved ?
Wikitree does not Ā«approveĀ» sites. The main reason that familysearch is recommended is that it is free to use, but the big pay sites including findmypast and Ancestry often have valuable records that are not available or have been wrongly indexed on familysearch. As to the reliability of any source you need to look at where the online site derived its index from and whether there are images attached. Personally, findmypast is my main go-to site for my English research, but I add familysearch citations where available to make life easier for Wikitreers who do not subscribe to findmypast.
Yes, there is the rub, I do not subscribe to pay sites for personal reasons. I was rather hoping someone would kindly provide me with the relevant data that I need.
