Mothers names are never shown on English marriage certs and fathers names were only shown from 1.7.1837

They married 1.3.1826  - not 19.2.1826.

The actual date looks like 27th of Feb.  The date you have may be from the banns take the week earlier.
No parents are listed, as CaroleW has noted.

I saw an index for both 01 Mar, and 06 Mar, but from the image I'm seeing "twenty (seven?) February.  It is hard to read.  Do you want a snippet to check.... it might very well be my old eyes!

Aha!  Even though it is just banns, they use the "so and so were married on whatever date", as now I see a second image for 01 Mar.

In case the witness names help, they were J. White and J(s) Davies.

 :D thank you all for the information I was trying to confirm a link between james and ann(e) in regards to james gibsons son William Ignace Gibson b.8/oct/1826 as on his christening his mother was ann and this is the only ann I can find who married james around the dates that would be suitable as far as I know ann died in oct 1828 and buried 30/oct/1828 st Marylebone two years after her son was born and this marriage in Westminster is the only one I can find if you can think of any other way I maybe how to link this couple to William Ignace Gibson who is my great grandfather thank you once again for your help. chris (giblaw)

I am assuming that William Ignace Gibson was the composer that went by Ignace Gibsone (1826 -1897)?

A mini biography of Ignace Gibsone lists James and Ann as his parents, but I have no idea of where they got that info:  https://musicalics.com/en/node/98594

Other sites that Google showed lists Ignace as of Scottish and French heritage.  If I have been tracking James correctly, he is Scottish, so that leaves Ann as possibly French.  Could they have married in Scotland?

Again, if I am chasing the right fellow, James is alone in 1841 census, musician, living in Maidstone, but by 1851, he is with a new wife Elizabeth, and several children, oldest being 17.  I can't find her and the children in 1841 so far.

It seems this James died in 1860, and there is an article on his death, which gives no family mention, but talks a bit about his music.  If you think I'm on the right track, I'll write out the article.

EDIT  Ignore the 1841 census mentioned in this post. Please see Reply #8 by Trish1120 for the correct one.
