Three Ancestry trees have William Lunn marrying an Ellen Harris but I am convinced he married 1861 a Ellen Lloyd adopted daughter of Samuel Cutler and Jane Lloyd

Hannah Boston.
Ellen Harris.

I had the same situation years ago before information was on the internet, when we had to do research the old way by going to various archives to look at the parish registers and censuses.

From the original parish register I had an Isaac Cartwright, a Widower, marrying Esther Careless nee Hipkiss, a Widow, they both signed with a mark X. I went back to re-check the marriage to see if I had it correct as all the censuses pointed to him being Isaac Carter. Found his first marriage to Mary Hickman and he was Isaac Carter. As he had signed with a mark X he obviously didn't know if the entry in the register was correct or not when he married Esther.
Researching: PARGETER, BELCHER, BRADLEY, DANDO, ROWLEY, ROWSELL
