Thanks again for the help with this. I'm currently following up my hunch that John Chennell may have been adopted but I'll also order that birth certificate that was found with mother Bennett as that provide some insight.

I have asked before but you have not responded, do you have the marriage certificate for John Chennel as that should name his father.

Hi Rosie, well I've just ordered it today so I'll see what that throws up. I guess it'll either clarify things, or possibly sow even more confusion.!

It could add to the confusion, it is a shame that only the marriage licence is online.  Let us know when it arrives, I do hope it helps.

Marriage is said to have been at St Peter's Church, Eaton Square, Pimlico.

Ancestry say they have marriages for St Peter, 1851-1883. But when you look at the images they are marriages at St Matthew, Great Peter Street ???

The Westminster records were until recently on findmypast.
All images have been removed, but transcripts remain. The Chennell-Linegar marriage is indexed on there, but I don't know whether fathers' names have been included among the details.

Have just had a look and there is no father's name included in the Index.

Re the 1836 Chennell-Bennett marriage in Westminster.

Another marriage!
26 May 1856, St Mary Lambeth
William Davey, Widower, Tailor
+
Sarah Chennell, Widow, father Richard Bennett (decd), Surveyor?
Both of full age, residence Lambeth.

I've had a struggle to pin them down, but believe this could be William in 1851 in St George Hanover Square
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGTD-XZK

He is a Tailor (Master), age 50, born Devon, married to Elizabeth, 46. Living Wilton Road
A death in St George H Sq in 1854, Elizabeth Davey, age 50

Can't find William (and Sarah) in 1861, they may be lost if in St George. The whole Belgrave sub-dist is lost.
That is where I think they are in 1871
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VBXM-FVV
piece 106 folio 11 page 15
2 Wilton Road
William Davey Head 66 Tailor Devon Kenton
Sarah Davey Wife 57 Bucks Horton
George Davey Son 45 Middlesex Soho

The Buckinghamshire Baptism Index has a baptism
1805, Horton
Sarah Bennett
Parents Richard + Hannah

Was not Eliza Linegar, the wife of John Chennell, from Horton? A strange coincidence!

Eliza Chennell is born Horton circa 1841 in the census returns.
This might be her in 1861 with her parents John and Elizabeth Linegar in Horton, Bucks
Age 20, born Horton
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7J5-JN4

Horton was in Eton registration district
A possible birth reg?:
LINEGAR, ELIZA       
Mother's Maiden Surname: BENNETT 
GRO Reference: 1841  M Quarter in ETON UNION BUCKS  Volume 06  Page 358
