Look on

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

But that only starts at 1837, so if they married before that, you won't find them there.

Yes, they did marry after 1837, so you'll find it.

I won't post it for you, as you can have the fun of finding it yourself, but I will say that Mary's surname was Walters, with an "s".

Where it says "Type", click "Marriages".
Then just enter their names, no dates. In the "Counties" box click on Gloucestershire, if you want to , otherwise just leave it at "All Counties", and click "Find".

Also, be careful with the spelling when entering their names.

When you've found the record, which will just give you one of their names, click on the blue number 569, and you'll see all the people who married at the same time (I don't mean the same day!), and both their names will be there.

Think I've found his parents in 1841 and 1851....... I won't put them on, it's so nicer to find them yourself, BUT if you do need help just ask.
