      Barbara,

      You mentioned you wanted to find out the first wife of James Jones (b1806) who married Mary Ann Cambridge in 1838. Perhaps Mary Ann C was indeed his first wife - but by the time they married in 1838 they already had 2 children - Martha b1833 and Ann b1836. On the marriage parish register it does say James Jones, bachelor. But on the marriage banns register it says widower, not bacheleor; banns called on 17th, 24th and 31st Dec 1837. Unfortunately you can't get a birth certificate for either Martha or Ann to see the name of the mother and you have to rely on the baptism information - which in this instance doesn't help much either because the baptisms occurred much later - in 1854.
