Marriage Query for Alexander Wilson and Elisabeth Shittleton

There is no record of a marriage between Alexander Wilson and Elisabeth Shittleton on Scotland's People. Using the following query on Scotland's people for Banns and Marriages in any region of Scotland (on the assumption Alexander didn't marry before he was 18):

Surname: "Wilson"; Surname Option: Variants; Forename: "Alex"; Forename Option: Prefix; Sex: "Any"; Spouse's Surname: "Elizabeth"; Date From: 01 January 1767; Date To: 31 December 1774;

There were no matches using the spouse's name as Elisabeth, and the following matches are returned using the spouse's name as Elizabeth:

No Date Surname Forename Spouse Name/Frame No Sex Parish City/County GROS Data
