264.  English marriage registration #3 in the Bradfield District for 1837 (from General Register Office) gives:
Married in the Parish Church of Bucklebury, Berkshire 10/18/1837:
   John Wollice, of full age, labourer, resides Yattendon, father William Wollice, labourer
   Elizabeth Cripps, a minor, resides Bucklebury, father Stephen Cripps, labourer
witnessed by Nathaniel Hedges and Eliza Cripps.
(all but Nathaniel signed with an X)
[BWB:  I believe that these are the John and Elizabeth Wallace who were the parents of William Wallace of Yattendon, father of our Edythe M. Wallace.  Supporting this thesis is that one William Cripps was a witness at William Wallace's and Mary Anne Jerome's wedding.  I believe this William Cripps was Elizabeth's brother due to same birth locations and similar, compatable ages per census of 1871 and 1891.  And, item [333] lists an Eliza Cripps as a sister to Elizabeth.]
