      "The following is copied from the records of the Society of Friends; -- "Att our monthly meeting held att our meeting house att Woodbridge ye 18th day of the 2nd month, 1717, Grace Kinsey and Mary Trenury presented William Webster and Susanna Cowperthwait to this meeting who declared their intention of taking each other in marriage, it being the first time. This meeting appoints John Laing and John Shotwell, Junior, to report in ye man's clearness in respect to marriage with any other and into his conversation." And on "ye 16th of the 3rd month, 1717, ....... Elizabeth Shotwell and Ann Brotherton presented before this meeting (of Men Friends), William Webster and Susannah Copperthwait who declared their intentions of marriage, it being the second time and on enquiry made, nothing appearing to obstruct, this meeting leaves them to their liberty to consummate their intentions of marriage according to the good order of truth. And it was left to the care of John Kinsey to provide them a certificate. (Children recorded later.)"
