Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1811 Marriage Record for John Richman and Ann Marshman in Hilperton, Wiltshire

It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1811 marriage of John Richman and Ann Marshman in the Hilperton, Wiltshire Church of England parish registers:

The Richman - Marshman marriage record is the last one on the page:

The extracted information from this record is (handwritten information in italics):

No.  20  
Banns of Marriage between  John Richman of this Parish,
                                           and Ann Marshman of this Parish, 
married in this   Church   by   Banns  

this   twenty-eighth   Day of   Feb'y   in the Year One Thousand Eight
Hundred and   eleven   by me,   J. Bailes, Curate     
This marriage was solemnized between us }  The Mark  X  of John Richman                                                                          }  The Mark X of  Ann Marshman   
In the Presence of }      Richard Hiscock      
                              }     the Mark X of Thomas Marshman   

The source citation for this record is:

"Wiltshire, England, Church of England Marriages and Banns, 1754-1916," indexed database with record images, ( : accessed 29 April 2020), Hilperton > 1807-1812, image 51 of 64, No. 20, John Richman and Ann Marshman marriage record, 28 February 1811.

The parents of John Richman and Ann Marshman are not known, although I have suspicions about who they are.  One clue is one of the witnesses on this marriage record - Thomas Richman may be John's father, brother, uncle or another close relative.  The other witness, Richard Hiscock, is a witness on several other marriages in this time frame.

This is the marriage record from the Hilperton, Wiltshire parish register for my 3rd great-grandparents, John Richman (1789-1867) and Ann Marshman (1784-1856).  Before I accessed this record, I had the Bishop's Transcripts record from the FHL microfilms.
