If I were you, I'd post a lookup request for the marriage in the Bratton PR, in order to get details of the witnesses etc. 

Thanks for the tip - I'll do it now

Hello Juliea and Kirsten.

I am always looking for Douse relatives in the Keevil, Marton Area. Below is the top of my Tree, from a handwritten note I have.

William 1831

   William Douse Ser., now living in Devizes is son of Philip Douse and Jane Douse of Marston near Devizes and father of William Douse of P.E.Island.

   Dinah Douse wife of William Ser. who is dead and buried at the Dissenting Meeting House and was daughter to Edward and Mary Erwood of Hare and Hound Street near the Devizes Green.

   The property of the late Edward Erwood near the Baptist Meeting House a freehold entailed property was left to Dinah and to her heirs for ever after the death of William her husband it must come to William their & eldest child me William Douse, to William Erwood Douse my Eldest son.
            W. Douse

Hi,
I,m afraid so far I don,t have a William Douse born in 1831 or  a Phillip Douse on my tree, although it may be a line i have so far not discovered! Most of my line of Douse,s were born in Keevil so it maybe a cousin,s line I will have a dig further into this, Do you have any other Douse names and dates of birth I can check?

Julia,

Sorry about the confusion. William Douse was born in 1800. 1831 is when he wrote the note. Kirsten, and I have the same trouble, Douses from Keevil but can't find the top of tree.

Hi Juliea I was wondering if you have managed to get back any further on this line. I have William's dad being William, but that is as far as I can get!
