Francis Needle and Mary Hatcher were married in Kings Somborne, which is a parish to the west of Winchester, and to the south of Stockbridge, Hampshire, England. It is difficult to tell whereabouts they lived in the parish, though there are many houses in the area that clearly date from that period. A search of the church yard at Kings Somborne has not revealed any headstones for either Needle or Hatcher surnames.
