If posible is anyone able to look up records office for a marriage

Plymouth June quarter 1857

H: Westlake Richard
W: Ellis Mary lovell guest

Richard was born Northlew, Devon
Mary born Bratton Clovelly, Devon

Richard and Mary emmigrated to South Australia but some confusion of dates, some records show 1855 others 1857...

I think they would have been still in England in 1855.



Hopeing to find Mary's father and I believe it would be a Weslayean marriage.

Her mother's maiden I think is guest as she had an aunt Anne aurthur Guest who was married to a Rev James Brooks.

Cheran, I don't think it's feasible for anyone to do this - the marriage could have been in any of a number of churches, or even the register office. I think you either need to send for the marriage certificate, or try asking Devon FHS who may have indexed it.
