There is an Archdeaconry of Lewes marriage licence for John Weller and Mary Thorpe on 7 Dec 1805. John is a yeoman, widower otsp and Mary is of Maresfield and 39+ years old. The actual marriage in Maresfield on 10 Dec 1805 is recorded in the Sussex Marriage Index as John Weller marrying Elizabeth Thorp, not Mary. Also, there are two children baptised to a John and Elizabeth Weller in Maresfield in 1806 and 1809 (Henry and Eliza resp.) There are no baptisms for a John and Mary Weller. This needs further investigation.
Another possible marriage for Mary Thorpe is 19 Dec 1792 Mary Thorpe married Joseph Holman (lic.) at Fletching. Mary was of Fletching. The marriage licence has Mary's age as 24+ years which would put her birth c1768, so this marriage is probably not for our Mary Thorpe.1
