William Hooper & Lucy Longney married 1817 Arlingham (Parish Records)

Hi - thanks - I had already found those, but it is good to get confirmation.
The specific issue I have is when William was born.
I have found a baptism in Churcham 18/1/1795, born to Thomas and Mary.
This fits with the marriage witnesses, Edward and Esther.
The merchant seaman ticket 263358 issued 18/6/1845 has his birth as Churcham 23/2/1798 and he first went to sea in 1816.
I can't find a William Hooper born anywhere on this date, never mind in Churcham.
I'm now convinced that Thomas and Mary were his parents.
I just wanted to be sure that the one that ended up in Southampton was him.
Thanks again
