Looks like Esther's maiden name is Grantham. If she is Thomas (shoemaker) second wife I think they may have married before civil registration.

found marriage Headington 5 April 1828, doesn't give condition of either so don't know if he was a widower.
But Robert Harris bapt 1832 with Jane as mother doesn't fit, unless very late baptism

We have three Thomases.

1 Thomas + Jane Polley m Headington baptised several children in Headington, occ labourer / mason

2 Thomas + Jane Viner m  Witney 1820  - three children bapt in Northleigh starting in 1821 likely to be theirs. occ Ag lab

3 Thomas + Esther / Hester Grantham m Headington , several children b Headington. Possibly vicar made mistake with Esther's name. Registers often filled in after the event, lost the Post-it and knew there was a Thomas / Jane couple in the neighbourhood. Occ shoemaker.

Thanks, LizzieL.

This is the problem when dealing with a fairly common name like Harris, but I think I'm getting there!

Much appreciated.
