I don't know if this is the correct forum or if I should be in marriages but here goes.
I have marriage details for a John Kirby who I am hoping is mine. I have found two entries, one being for John Kirby married in Dersingham, St Nicholas on the 3rd of Oct 1720, marrying a Elizabeth Handason (I am thinking this might have been Anderson, yes??). Then I have another entry for a John Kirby married in Dersingham St Nicholas on the 9th of Oct. 1720 to a Elizabeth Harrison.I am pretty sure he is my John as the first child below who was born in 1721 I have all the details on ie marriage death who he married and her birth and death details and childfren.
Has anyone come across something like this, is this Elizabeth the same person and if not how do I go about trying to find out if they are two different people. John and Elizabeth had three children:

Joseph b. 20th jan 1721 in Dersingham
John b. 10th aug 1729 in Dersingham
Will b. 20th Feb 1725/6 in Dersingham:confused:

As always any help much appreciated.
