It's GEORGE WITHEE.
HIs signature is very difficult to make out, but looks more like George Withey - almost definitely a 'y' on the end.
The first witness signs  (possibly Peter?) WITHEY.

It's by licence so there may be some other paperwork related to it which may give you more information like ages or even the name of the bride's father. Can't see which county it is. If in England (looks like an English marriage form), they are generally held at the county Record Office. Some are on findmypast.

Sorry! Didn't see the transcription underneath! :D
Glad to see I agree with what has been transcribed though! - apart from they have transcribed 'licence' (English spelling), as 'license' (American spelling). Not good practice.

Added: There's a post here about Somerset marriage licences.

I think the family and perhaps extended family stayed in the Bath area.
If it is of interest to you, here are notices of the marriage of a girl who would seem to be a daughter of your couple


This item was Published on Monday 11 February 1833
Newspaper Sherborne Mercury
In the County of Dorset, England

... MARRIED. Feb. G, Ashwick. Charles Andrew, second son of; J. iiariow, Esq., Wedmore, Somerset, Miss Withey, niece E. Pickwick, Esq., Square, Bath.

 
Here is another print of the same item.

Published on Saturday 16 February 1833 in the Newspaper  Bristol Mercury
 
?? Ashwick, Charles Andrew, second an son of J. Barrow, Esq..of'Wellmore, to Miss Withey, niece to E. (h Pickwick, Esq. of Queen-square, Bath

These items are in their "uncorrrected form" but I think are intelligible enough ;)

I am not able to see more on this site, but you may wish to search further.

This news item may be of interest in regard to the signature.

I believe this man is the same PICKWICK Esq as the one above who mentions his niece.

Eleazer Pickwick, esq; mayor, was chosen an alderman of this city, in the room of W. Clark, esq; dec. 
 
It was Published on Thursday 19 April 1827 in Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette
Newspaper  in the county of County Somerset, England.

Only a guess really ::)

Thank you for your wonderful help.  I had typed out what I could read below the document, but could not make out the witnesses. 

This has been an interesting family to research. I do think I will try to procur a subscription to the British newspapers.  I have two separate subscriptions, genealogybank.com and newspapers.com, for the US newspapers.

There appears to be some published information about this Pickwick and Withey family.  Charles Andrew Barrow, son the the Magistrate of Wedmore, John Barrow, did marry Martha Withey in 1833.  I was not able to find the baptism record for Martha.  Her mother Elizabeth Pickwick Withey would have been 47 years old when she was born.  I was hoping to find other siblings of this couple.  I did find baptism records for an Elizabeth Withey born 1793 and Susan Withey born 1796, bapt St. James Bath Somerset, and wondered what other siblings there might be.

Truly truly appreciate all of your help. You are the BEST!

There's a PCC will for George Withey of Bath, proved in 1798. This George's father, I think. It mentions a wife Ann, son George and other children.

Thank you.  What do the initials PCC stand for?  Where can I locate that will?  You have been terrific help.
