What you have shown is the parents' names?

Top line is the groom's information:
Echuca     John Goodenough and Agnes Will??? MN (stands for maiden name) Bowman   Gentleman

Bride's info

Deniliquin NSW    David and Annie Bowden MN Reece       Sea captain

So looks as though the marriage Sue found is correct.

Hmm, it is a bit odd that Clara's father's name is given as David.  Shows also that her husband was born in Echuca

Judith, what does it mean when it names the Groom's father as  a 'gentleman'? does this mean he was higher up in society?

Also on the grooms side of the family, why would John's father have a different last name? I know Agnes (his mother) was married to a John Williams... does this mean he was illegitimate?

Sorry,
I merely meant that I had posted something which was meaningless and silly and so I "wiped it"

I will amend the post again so as to be less confusing. :D

Apologies.

To answer your question if I can.
Annie was born in UK and the most usual starting point for BDM there is

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

Indexing starts at SEPT 1837.

However, there will be many ANN REECE's in the right timeframe and difficult to know which may be yours.
