Is this their marriage? 1895 rather than 1859 or 1869?

Marriages Dec 1895 (>99%)
Duffin Henry St. Saviour 1d 306
Hart Catherine St. Saviour 1d 306


Look for births on the GRO site (free, though you have to register) , using both parents' surnames.
You'll have to search for females and males separately, and can search in 5-year slices.

Some years ago I received lots of help on this site regarding a Phoebe Caroline Jackson, widow, who married in LAMBETH, in 1822. The first child from this marriage was Elizabeth Mary Ann DAFFEN Brigden, Newington, 1824. Phoebe was a Barling by birth and her parents marriage in Rochester, Kent, 1773, gave her mother's name as DAFFORNE. It might be worth considering various spellings of the name Duffin.
