Looks like Gyde's studios.
There was one in Aberystwyth. I don't know if there were others.

She may not have been from that parish and the marriage would usually be in the bride's parish.

The Common Room / Re: Ancestry Subscription Discount

Tried again.

This time......

I cleared all ancestry cookies
Put on a VPN and pretended to be in the UK
Got the half-price offer page.
Tried to pay through PayPal and it didn't like that (scary 'there is an issue with your order' message)
Tried a second time to pay using a card and it went through.

Thanks to all for the tip. Got the worldwide for 89.99 sterling (106.21 which is not too bad an exchange rate).

Possibly. It's not a very common name in Dublin.
I note there is a James Tucker, bookbinder in the 1901 census.
