What's the name of Richard Ingraham's wife? Allegedly Elizabeth Wignoll? Unknown?

+4 votes

Is the given name of Richard Ingraham's first wife known?

Is it Elizabeth?

Where is the record for the marriage 4 Apr 1628?

Is she Elizabeth Wignoll? Anderson (Great Migration) considers Elizabeth Wignall to be a figment of RT Meyers imagination (See profile for her alleged brother John]] )

Sources? Even the bad ones shed light.

If the 1628 marriage took place in Barrowby as  on the profile, it should be here https://www.lincstothepast.com/General-register/543430.record?pt=T

(I can't view these  images on my phone so can't check)

That was helpful Helen. the viewer is a pain but there was not a marriage record in 1628 in Barrowby.
Wignall-2 is my tenth grandmother, Trogstad-3. :)
Jodi, I hope you won't be too upset when she turns into Elizabeth Unknown.

Thanks, Marion.  Since the marriage given here is 1648 in England, it must be for a completely different Richard Ingraham, as the immigrant had been in New England for a decade or more. The immigrant was having children with his New England wife in New England at the time this English marriage took place.
