The witnesses look to me to be Stephen Spurling and ? Tomlinson, the letter being either I, J or T.  Not sure about the vicar though.  Looks like Horabuckle, and surprisingly, there is such a name!

I'd agree with Greensleeves on the witnesses.

The Clergy Database (http://theclergydatabase.org.uk/) doesn't have anyone called Horabuckle, but there are four called Hornbuckle, of whom three would have been alive in 1809.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson
