Marriage: Rees THOMAS and Frances WALLEY 1832
« on: Saturday 04 November 17 08:16 GMT (UK) »
Hello All,
The couple named in the heading married in St Paul, Bristol, 10 June 1832.
I have this information from FamilySearch.
I know the name of Frances' father but would love the name for Rees's father, and his birth place. 
How do I get a copy of this marriage?
I know I can write to the Bristol Record Office and hopefully they can tell me the cost before I commit myself, but I am wondering if there is an easier way.
Thank you.
Jean
PS I do have their children well documented so please do not worry about finding them.

I've just found the same record but not from Ancestry-

This is what I've already typed:

I see that they had a daughter named Dinah could this baptism be a possible for Rees as his birth year seems to be circa 1805 from the later censuses:

 
Lamas Street Meeting House (Independent), Carmarthen
31 August 1804

Rees Thomas, son of Rees and Dinah Thomas

Either baptised twice,  or 31 August 1804 was his birthday and entered twice,  or the 1804 one died  :-X
