According to the Gloucester Geneological Database, the Benjamin Jordan Will of Churchdown dated 1814 was a Victualler, so ran the local Pub! Perhaps Sarah was a barmaid and John popped in for a beer or two after a hard day at work. if it’s the same Benjamin!
Labourers etc. did move around the area at certain times of the year, harvesting, turnip picking, etc. etc. One of my Forest of Dean Ancestors was a Gamekeeper and he certainly moved around different areas.

The couples first baby was christened in June, 3 months after the Wedding. Harvest the year before!
