Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me? I have come across some unusual abbreviations which I am struggling to make sense of. The info is:
Ann Giffard  (unm.) 1559 fw; m p1559 George Smith of Ashby, Leics and Wotton, Warwicks; (and had chn: Ann m Francis Meynell of Willington, Derbys c1560-.... QV).
I have managed to translate to:
Ann Giffard  (unmarried.) 1559 fw; married p1559 George Smith of Ashby, Leicestershire and Wotton, Warwickshire ; (and had children: Ann married Francis Meynell of Willington, Derbyshire circa 1560-.... quod vidē).
But I am not sure of the meaning of:
1559 fw and
Also, I am confused by the use of '(unmarried)' and then later 'married'. It seems to contradict itself, unless i have misunderstood (unm.).
Many thanks, Sarah
