So you have 'Esquire' in one family, and agricultural labourers in the other family.

Thank you for your help
 Is this your Mother's parents' marriage?

Marriages September quarter 1917
Richard Chard                    Bedwellty    11a   198     
 Agnes M   Hutchings    Bedwellty    11a   198

If correct marriage and he born around 1899, he would have been about 18 when he married?
   ,Is this your Mother's parents' marriage?
