Hi Jane,
They married by licence and the Wilts FHS have issued a CD of Wilts, Dorset & Berks marriage Licences.
The entry reads;
Richard Goddard, 28, Bac, cordwainer, East Hendred,Berks to Elizabeth Bunce, 22,sp,  East Hendred
with Bondsman; William Tuck, Yeo, Wantage, Berks
Dated 2-7-1744 Wantage.
I'll have a look at my EH records to see if they are listed there.

Jane,

East Hendred registers have some bapt. entries and I've found ;
29-10-1721 Elisabeth Bunce d/o John & Sarah.

The only Richard Goddard I could find was a bapt. on 1-9-1709 in West Hendred s/o John & Sarah - if its the correct one then he is older than 28!!
 
Going back to East Hendred I found these two baptisms;
9-8-1747 John Goddard s/o Rich'd & Elizabeth
23-1-1757 Sarah    "      d/o    "             "
Buried;
14-1-1757 John Bunce

So far as burials go I have these, all West hendred;
30-1-1757 Richard    Goddard
21-10-1766 John          "
30-6-1782 Elisabeth     "
3-7-1786 Sarah            "
6-3-1739 Sarah            "   w/o John

Hope these help.

Hi Alan,

Amazing! Thank you! Is the Richard Goddard bapt. 1709 in West Hendred the only Richard in the area ? Or in whole Berkshire? Maybe Richard isnt from Berkshire?

Is there a marriage for John Bunce and Sarah before 1721 in East Hendred,Berkshire?

There is a baptism of John Bunce in 1690 in East Hendred s/o Thomas and Elizabeth. Im interested in the maide name of Elizabeth.

Hi Jane,
I'm afraid your out of luck; The earliest marriage in EH for a John Bunce took place in 1760 to a Sarah Woodly. None earlier.
As regards John Bunce; the bapt. entry you have found 10-6-1690 s/o Thomas & Elizabeth is all there is.
The records state there are gaps for marriages between; 1680-1687 & 1688-1694. I presume the marriage you're looking for took place during these gaps.

In West Hendred there are no Bunce bapts or Burials at all, and only a couple of marriages in 1832 & 1882.

No great info for you I'm sorry to say.

PS I did just look in the East Ilsley records but nothing came out there either.
