Can't find a marriage yet but have found some interesting things, so bear with me

Another Child of Robert Blunt and Ann Porter is

Thomas bn 14 Oct 1803, bap. 16 Nov 1803, St. George the Martyrs, Southwark, Surrey.

Here is his probate record: 19 Nov. 1874~ The will of Thomas Blunt late of Shrewsbury, chemist and druggist died 15 Oct. 1874 was proved at Shrewsbury by Thomas PORTER Blunt chemist and druggist the son. Effects: 6 000.

Then I found this probate entry

Anna Phipps Blunt: 1 June 1888~The will with a codicil of Anna Phipps Blunt formerly of Cheltenham but late of Church Stretton Salop died 10 April 1888 was proved by MARTHA BLUNT of MEOLE BRACE near Shrewsbury, widow the SISTER the surviving executrix. Effects: 2 525 11s 7d.

Here is her and Martha's baptism

Anna Phipps Blunt~ bn. 31 Mar 1806, Bap. 11 May 1806, Colliers Rents Whitestreet-independent Southwark
Martha Blunt bn. 04 Feb 1812, bap. 04 Mar 1812. Colliers Rents Whitestreet-independent Southwark

Parents: Thomas Blunt and Mary (Marlham), who married: 16 April 1803 St. George,Southwark.

Martha Blunt was 89 when she died in 1900 giving her a birth year of 1811/112.
I wonder if Henry and Martha were cousins?

Here's a probate record that your Henry was an executor of

Anne Blunt of High Street Newport, spinster, died 4 Dec. 1896, Probate Shrewsbury 27 Jan 1897 to Thomas Porter Blunt, analytical chemist and Henry Blunt, tutor. Effects: 3238 0s 8d.

Yes, we have been in touch...so she has some information already. I have a little on Robert's brother Thomas as he was also a chemist, including his family, which I just found recently, although have not proven...and jumped when I saw Martha might be a sister to Anna Phipps Blunt!
I have not sent for all the wills, but am doing so soon. I do have some of the info from them, from a distant cousin who was willing to share .
Thanks so much for more information as I didn't have Thomas's christening date, nor the parents as Robert & Mary!!!
I haven't done a lot of searching lately, but my hubby may be helping me do more soon!
Many many thanks to all,
J.J.

Elizabeth Mary Blunt  born May 3 1804, christened May  29 1804 Colliers Rents Independent Congregation, Southwark, London, parents Thomas Blunt, Mary

1834 - May 28 the Rev. E.W.Claypole to Elizabeth Mary, eldest daughter of the late Thomas Blunt, esq; of Chelsea.   Also either Thomas married two Marys in a short period of time, or Mary Marlham must have been previously married with her maiden name Phipps. I have found no proof as yet as to which is correct.

I also had one more possible christening
Rebekah Blunt christened Apr. 5 1809 Colliers Rents Independent Congregation, Southwark, London, parents Thomas Blunt, Mary

Married: 31 May 1836 St. Mary's Cheltenham, By the Rev. John Browne, M.A.  Henry, youngest son of Mr. Blunt of Tower place to Martha, youngest daughter of the late Thomas Blunt of Chelsea...
