There is a previous thread on the ROBBINS of Malmesbury.

If you join Rootschat Wiltshire - Contributors will see your request.

Also Public Members Tree has this family.

If you belong to Ancestry: Henry ROBINS married Mary BIGGS at Trowbridge St James with St Stephens - and there are a number of marriages of the BIGGS in the same church...

including

Thomas BIGGS 27 October 1765
Sarah BIGGS 15 May 1774
Elizabeth BIGGS 26 Apr 1779
Mary BIGGS 10 Februry 1788
William BIGGS (Widower in 1796)
Lucy BIGS 26 February 1797

If you don't belong to a subscription website then FamilySearch has these records and quite possibly more;

Name Henry Robbins
Spouse's Name Mary Biggs
Event Date 24 Feb 1788

"England Marriages, 1538–1973 ," database, FamilySearch

Great Bedwyn lies between Marlborough to it's west, and Newbury to it's east. Since the late 1700s it benefited from being on the Kennet and Avon canal, which also connects with Trowbridge to the west, but not of course in the 1730s.

Thankyou for your information,
I will look on family search as i'm taking a break from Ancestry.
I think one of the dates in the 1720's/30's might be My Mary's Parents

Mary had a sister Esther Biggs, they married Robins brothers Henry and Edmund Robins
Esther married at Trowbridge in 1795
I do have a John and Mary from North Bradley near Trowbridge could these be Mary's Parents.
Altho i didnt find Esther with the same parents but a William born 1781.
I found an Esther born 1767 at Walcot st Swithin -Parents John and Rebbecca
