I'm a newbie here and I was wondering whether somebody could help me with the following.

I'm looking for the baptism or birth record for a Mary Povey/Povy. I have only been able to locate her marriage record which does not mention parents or a birth place. However, my family tree gives her birth place as "Ellsmare" which I guess could mean Ellesmere, Shropshire and her death on 2.3.1783. However, this has not been helpful with my search on findmypast.

Mary Povey married Christopher Gobert on 1.9.1776 at St. James, Westminster, Middlesex

Christopher was born in 1744 in Germany as Johann Christoph Goebert.

Thank you.
