She has a bad habit of doing that, I know.  ;D

If I come up with any brilliant theories, I will let you know, but at this point ... nothing, I'm afraid.

I told her it was only President Bush-style false news, but I'm afraid she was not convinced!

As suggested by Sue, I have e-mailed the Record Office in Exeter to find out if they have a 'proper record' of this marriage, which might give me more information.

Apparently, the charge is 8 so, if I can navigate my way through the form-filling and payment procedure, I'll have a go.

My 8 only produced a copy of the BT, so I'm none the wiser.

I've asked them if I can obtain a copy of the original register entry, so we'll see what happens.

Apparently, the charge is 6 including postage, so I've placed an order.

Probably the best you can hope for is a witness with the same surname (and then the job of figuring out the connection), or an indication of the marital status of the spouses.

Which marriage is this that you are getting the record of?

MONCK?

Stoke Damerel, 30 Sep 1747, William BENNETT to Elizabeth DYER.

I can't get any further back for either of them, so I'm hoping that the full register entry will provide a clue or two.
