Have you not encountered those circumstances in the West Country before?  How do you know it's not a second marriage to a same-name wife?  If a first, was the groom waiting to marry until he could provide a home:  no mean feat when wages were lower than elsewhere in the UK?  Did he have a 'clinging' mother?  Did his parents not approve of his intended wife? 

If you're wise, you'll keep all your options open and not dismiss anything within close proximity without researching, if only to eliminate!
