No MERRETT/BENFIELD marriages on Gloucestershire Marriage CD 1800 to 1837 . There are only 23 Benfield marriages listed.

As Thomas, father of William was a basket maker - this might be a travelling family who were normally, Hawkers, Basket Makers, Tinsmiths and Tinkers. In which case the marriage could have taken place under their own system.
