My grandparents were married in 1923 in Belfast. Granda (Frank Charles
Escott) was a 34 year old bachelor. Granny was 32 year old widow (with one
child from first marriage) but her age is given as 30. Why woud she have
knocked 2 years off? it's not as though there was a big age difference or
that she was older than him, (his age is correct) so was it just vanity?
