bullet  General Notes:

Marriage Notes for JAMES BLACKMAN and ELIZABETH HARLEY:
Elizabeth Harley was previously engaged to George Davies, son of General Davies, and the young man, noted for his extreme irascibility, contacted smallpox. Upon seeing him and the unsightly blotches, his fiance could not suppress a smile and her untimely mirth so angered the short tempered invalid, he grabbed hold of a nearby musket and shot her through the side of the face. This put an end to the engagement! Later, against the wishes of her father, she married James.
Elizabeth and James were married by Banns.
As George Harley disapproved of the marriage he forbid his family to attend the wedding. It was at the very last minute that he relented and attended the wedding with Elizabeth's brother Samuel. No other members were allowed to attend.
It was only after the birth of their first child, Samuel, that George forgave Elizabeth. He sent a set of silver and despatched five cows to a farm in the vicinity of Woolwich, the milk to be used for the child. He also requested that they live at the farm so as to be near him, and to this they agreed. They resided there for some years during which three more sons were born.
