Thanks for those couple of pieces of info. The first one looks likely. How do I get a look at these marriage bonds?

You would have to write to the Wiltshire records office or the Wiltshire Society. If its the Wiltshire records office the Trowbridge office has now shut but a new one is opening in Chippenham in November.

You could also try the IGI and Hugh Wallis batch numbers for the parish records. They may not be on there but they are adding all the time.

Good Luck
