John signed the marriage Register but Elizabeth signed only with an X, which was endorsed ‘The Mark of Elizabeth Warne’.
John Warne - most probably her father - and John Goole, a church official whose name appears in the register as a witness to many marriages, witnessed the marriage.

Her father died in May 1802 and in his will, where he was described as a 'Yeoman', he left Elizabeth 'for life annuity of £5 from Pennard in St. Breock. It is not known exactly what Pennard was but most probably a property of some sort.
