Thomas Willis and Mary Otley, married 16th of October 1800, Shalford, Essex

Dipping into your list at random I see that full details from the Parish Register for this marriage are readily available on freeReg  :-\

You could also have tried the Family Search Catalogue,  https://www.familysearch.org/catalog/search and you will find that the BT's for Shalford 1800 onwards are available for you to look at yourself online (this will be how jonw65 found the Wimbish entries for you) https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/516896?availability=Family%20History%20Library
The camera icon denotes that you can view them yourself ( I think this has been pointed out before?)

There are several other parishes on the same film, so you need to skip through to find Shalford.
You will discover that the marriage in question is also there although lacks the names of the witnesses given on the Parish Register.

I suggest you go through your list and check if any other parish entries are available via Family Search by using the catalogue search. If any of them are, then you can have the fun of searching for them yourself  ;)
