1. Why did Maria and Thomas not marry until 1833, by which time they had had 5 children. Wasn't this very unusual?
2. Why marry 9-10 miles away from where they lived, and with them both said to be "of this parish", when all the children are born in the Brand Gren, Upleadon area?

I've come across the same thing and I think it's probably more common than might be thought. They might have been known locally as husband and wife so married outside the area so locals were unaware of it.
