Graham,

Is Elizabeth related to Mary Ann Nightingall who married Robert Legge in your other thread - looking for Robert's parents?

I can find births for Mary Ann to Thomas and Hannah 03/03/1816 and for Elizabeth 09/02/1813

Doesn't help find either groom's parents though (sorry)

Don't know if it helps but the witnesses at the marriage were Charles Welsh and Mary Ann Hooper - possibly his sister?
