Try this then on Ancestry (correct is Freckingham)

Unfortunately the GRO index records themselves are full of errors. FreeBMD will update transcription errors but not in the original record.

A mystery of more than 17 years was solved this week by sending for copies of entries in original marriage registers.
The GRO information had been mistranscribed between original and master copy, so that the groom at a 1883 wedding did not sign as Thomas,as shown on GRO copy bought in 1996. He clearly signed James.

His signature matched that on a marriage entry of 1871, so now 2 branches of the family can be linked though their father.
