Oh, thank you so much for looking it up. The other Hearson marriages make the Wisbech link sound less likely  :-\

I spent a couple of hours in the Cambridgeshire Record Office today and at least have determined that the name there is 'Charlotte Hareson', which is clearly distinguished from the many Harrisons whose names, written in the same hand, are peppered through those registers.

Thank you - that, in itself, is promising...

Does anyone have access to the marriage registers of St Peter-the-Great? I've been searching for this marriage for a long time. All I know for certain is that a John Jones (b. Dartford, Kent) m. a Charlotte (b.Wisbech or Ely, Cambridgeshire) and had their first child in Stedham, W. Sussex in 1813. A Charlotte Hareson was christened in Wisbech in 1793, and this is why I want to investigate this marriage (Hareson could easily have become Hearson). The fact that neither bride nor groom came from Chichester won't stop them being described as 'o.t.p.', of course, but I just want to know whether there's anything in the register beyond the bare facts to indicate that this might be my couple. Thanks for reading!  :)

Sorry to come in on this correspondence so long after the initial exchanges. I'd be interested if you've found out anything else about Bull's Farm. My great grandfather and his family were living there in 1911.

Yes, and the advanced search facility is impressive.

Yes, and because I had to take out a two-day subscription to look at this page from the Reading Mercury of 1835, I used the opportunity to trawl for many other ancestors and came up with some very useful additional information. I can't recommend the British Newspaper Archive too highly. Thank you, Dave, for prompting me to explore this resource.  :)

Your great grandfather's occupation makes sense - off the Upper Sunbury Road is the Victorian waterworks which has supplied the whole of greater London. St Mary's church (the parish church) is just up the road heading towards Hampton Court.

Ah - thanks. This makes sense.

In 1881, incidentally, he was stationed at the District Royal Marine Barracks, Forton, Alverstoke, Hampshire. I'll try to piece some more about him together.
