Lancashire Lookup Requests / Preston marriage St John's 1752

Could someone please look up a marriage for me at St John's Preston.
I have the basic details of the marriage of John Hill and Jennet Kay on the 27th Dec 1752. I want to know if the occupation of John is mentioned or if anybody knows if that information was recorded at that time?
Many thanks

Wigtownshire / John Devoy
« on: Tuesday 24 January 12 15:00 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find any information on a John Devoy who died in Stoneykirk, Wigtownshire in 1842.

Stoneykirk death register
Devoy John,  age 40, died 14 April 1842, burial 16 April 1842.

There are a couple of Devoy families in the area according to the census records but I do not know if he is related to them.

I am wondering if he may be the father of John James Devoy born in Scotland about 1826 who is living in Seacombe Cheshire in the 1851 census whose father was called John.

If he is I would guess he was probably born in Ireland. The heads of the other two Devoy families in the area were also born in Ireland.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
