    Marriage 1 Edward KNIGHT (II) b: 10 MAY 1794 in Godmersham, Kent
    • Married: 05 JUN 1826
    • Note:
      Mary's father Sir Edward Knatchbull (who, in October 1820, had married Edward Knight's elder sister) was strongly opposed to this marriage, feeling that Mary was too immature. The couple were determined, and eloped to Gretna Green in Scotland. Family records show that they left for Gretna on Saturday 13 May, and were married on Monday 15th. The marriage was re-consecrated at Steventon by Edward's brother Rev William Knight, as recorded in this Parish Record:
      KNIGHT Edward the younger, b., of Godmersham Kent, and KNATCHBULL, Mary Dorothea, sp., by licence.
      Witnesses WF Digweed, and Caroline Knight.
      The marriage was a happy one, broken only by Mary's early death shortly after bearing William Brodnax. Sir Edward was only reconciled to Mary one year before her death.
