Poor spelling!

I am always really grateful whenever I find transcriptions online. I feel really sorry for any volunteer that gives their time to read old records.

I came across a transcription of marriages in Elson, Gosport which included that of my grand-parents:

page 46 no 92 September 14 1929 Hery Harper YOUNG 32 Bachelor Salesman Fort House Elson & Kate Margaret BEGER 24 Spister Fort House Elson married after banns fathers Mansel YOUNG  Retired & George James BENGER Mechanic  in the presece of G J BENGER & W ANDERSON

My grandfather’s name was Henry Harper Young and my grandmother was Viola Margaret Benger and was a spinster. I think I would have used my judgement to change spister to spinster!
