    MARRIAGE: (1) Saffron Walden, Essex, 28 October 1616 Elizabeth Creed [TAG 35:108]. (Moriarty reported the surname of this bride as "Creel" but Boyd's Marriage Index has it as "Creed". The final letter of the surname is lost in an inkblot in the microfilm of the original parish register. A survey of Boyd's Marriage Index and Essex probate indexes reveals many instances of "Creed" and "Creek" but none for "Creel", so we have accepted the reading in Boyd's Marriage Index.)
