Details of the marriage of Jasper DOVE and Mary BROWN are taken from a 1916 transcript of the parish registers. The original parish registers were stolen from the church in 1948, and as the BTs survive from 1799 onwards only, this is the only record I have been able to find of this marriage. Thus I am not sure if Jasper's surname was spelt "DOVER" in the original entry or only in the transcription. Nevertheless, this would seem to be the right marriage for the couple, as at a settlement examination on 1 Feb 1779, Jasper stated that he had been legally married to his wife Mary at Foots Cray.

At this settlement examination in 1779, Jasper is given as a labourer residing in Bromley, but stated that his parish of legal settlement was Godstone SRY, where he had worked for a year 8 or 9 years previously. He also stated that he had by his wife one child named Mary Ann, aged about 5 months. It appears that Jasper later tried to gain settlement in Bromley, but at a further examination on 7 Aug 1786, his settlement was adjudged to be still in Godstone. At this examination he is shown as having 5 children by his wife Mary, namely Mary Ann aged 8, James aged 5, John aged 4, William aged 3 and Jane aged about 4 months.
