Hi
The marriage in 12 May 1854 is in Muckamore Antrim
Thomas and Ellen Murray .Fathers James and John.
It is also a Civil marriage registration so I'd assume C of Ireland.

Why  ??? All that is sure is that it is non-Catholic. So, could be Presbyterian, Registry Office, etc.

Are you saying that Thomas Watt born c1825 is the son of a James Watt born c1809? If so, then James was about 16 when son Thomas was born which is not impossible but unlikely. Where did you get James as born c1809 and why 'could be Parkgate'? Occupation?

Finding pre-registration records depends on surviving church records so you'll need to know their religion and where they lived (parish if not actual townland) to see what records might be available to search.
