Am trying to find the name of the mother of Edward James Gittins (Gittens). He was b. 1822 Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire (CMS). His marriage certificate of 1845 in CMS showed his father as William. The census' of CMS for 1841, 1851, and 1861 had a William Gittins b. 1793 and wife Elizabeth b. 1799, both b. in CMS. Neither William or Elizabeth were in the 1871 census so must have died there between the census of 1861 and 1871.
I need some look-up help: likely in the parish or church records on the birth date and baptism of Edward James, Elizabeth's maiden name and when William and Elizabeth may have died. I have the death cert. on Edward James Gittins, 1886 CMS.
From across the pond in Illinois, USA, with sincere appreciation for any help

My ancestor Mary Mantle (b. 1823 C.M. Shrop) md. Edward Gittens (Gittins) there in 1845. Marriage Certificate said her father was John Mantle. In Census for 1841, and 1851 were three possible sets of parents: John and Elizabeth, John and Martha, and John and Mary.  Need help from "across the pond": a look-up of parish or church baptisms that might show Mary's parents names.
