I wish I could see somewhere that my John Wise born abt 1826 who married Ann Drury parents were: John Wise and Sarah Theobalds. I know his father was: John Wise, but not sure about Sarah Theobalds ? I have got info from others on this, but I need to be 100% sure!

John Wise parents were: John Francis Wise and Sarah Theobalds, I hope this is correct. Need to be 100% sure.

I know my John Wise born abt 1826 in Kent, who first married Ann Drury, father was also called: John Wise, but where can I find if his mother was Sarah Theobalds ? It should be in the Parish records...
