This is the image from the application to marry, there is enough time for banns to be read from 16 May - 13 June and same clergyman. Does this mean that the 1842 marriage above is wrong, or are there 2 couples with same names and married about same time? :rolleyes:

I think there is ony one Richard & Jane and there was just enough time for banns to be read.

I posted that marriage because it was the only one that may have fitted but there is no sign they had a son David. They have baptisms for several children so I assume one for a son David is not missing.

I presume there is no tree suggesting they are his parents.
