ESRO ref PAR 426/32/2/49

From The Keep website.
But if you look at the second of the images, the ESRO reference at the bottom is actually
PAR 426/32/2/47

Just to be pedantic!

The only marriage I've been able to come up with is not too far away from the places mentioned, but was in Kent
5 June 1820, Staplehurst
George Smith + Olive Williams

I haven't seen any baptisms in Kent to a George and Olive Smith, so it may be a possibility. We shall see.

Hi
It's the East Sussex Record Office website. The Keep in Brighton is their home.

Hi
Just helping! I do have Smiths in my tree, but they are lost in Northumberland! I doubt whether they were related to your George and Olive, but you never know.
A terrible admission, I've not caught up with dna yet.
