From the parish register of Wadenhoe, Northants:- 

12 June 1753John Weekly performed his penance before the congregation having been found guilty of fornication with Susan Smith of this parish.

20 June 1756John Weekly performed his penance before the congregation having been found guilty of fornication for a second time with Susan Smith.
