Judging by the age, I think that Jane married Richard Bronson on the 4th of November 1776 in Wigston :(

Whichever Jane Bailey married Richard BRANSON (from the PR) she died in June 1789,  burial she is BRANSTON.

No age on the burial record either.

Something on the will of George who died in 1820. One of the witnesses was Henry Pochin. I thought he might be George's son, although he wouldn't normally be a witness. Looking again, he was likely to be the son of Mr. J (John and Mary?) Pochin, b 1791.

George's signature on the will isn't exactly the same as the one in the marriage register but changed with age and similar, especially the capital P.

Henry's signature is very similar the the person who married Mary Kenney on 16th January 1816 in Cosby. Presumably, George and Jane's son married Catherine Berry in 1820 - will dated 1869, naming five children.

Thank you David. Having viewed the marriage record, I was amazed that George was literate! Although he was a labourer, he did come from gentry stock originally, so it's likely he would've been taught to read and write. His wife only made her mark, so was presumably illiterate.
