Richard Goddard and Elizabeth Bunce perhaps?

Richard Goddard and Elizabeth Bunce B.L ... 2 July 1744
(Elizabeth BUNCE & Richard GODDARD   Marriage   2 July 1744   Berkshire   Wantage : St Peter and St Paul : Phillimore's Transcripts   Row 16 - Free reg)

You've certainly collected a few surnames related to gypsies Evans, Goddard, Butler and now Bunce - all suspected of being relatives?? Perhaps they are all country people intermarried with gypsy families who moved about for agricultural work?

Did you come across this
Philadelphia HITCHMAN
John KEW   Marriage   28 Oct 1793   Berkshire   West Hendred : Holy Trinity : Phillimore's Transcripts   Row 1 - free reg (Philadelphia is that a strange name or what? Means love of a brother?)

IGI says she was born in Radley, Berkshire in 1774. And is a footmans widow. Was hunting for gypsy connections
Wemyss/Crombie/Laing (West Wemyss)
Givens/Normand (Dysart)
Clark/Lister (Dysart)
Wilkinson/Simson (Kettle or Kettlehill)

Yes , Thanks i think Richard and Elizabeth Bunce are the right ones.  ;)

It's very confusing not to know if my ancestors were of Romany heritage or not  :( A lot of my ancestor were Agriculture Labourers or Farm labourers, Beer seller or bricklayers or normal labourers .

Yes , Philadelphia is a strange name but maybe related to my family ?
