      1832 marriage - lucky to see occupations, won't see father's names - not like the marriage certificates after Sep 1837 when civil registration began.

      The 1832 marriage details from the parish register of St Dunstan, Stepney.

      James Jones, bachelor, of this parish and Martha Jones, spinster, of this parish, married after banns 21st Oct 1832. Both James and Martha signed their names. The signature of James is similar but the 'Js' are not identical to the signature of James on his marriage in 1838. Witnesses were John Donovan and Sarah Dupres. Reg No 484 on Page 162 of parish register.

      Banns were called 26th Sep, 2nd, 9th Oct. All it says on the banns is James Jones bachelor and Martha Jones spinster, both of this parish.

      If this is a different couple then there could be baptisms for James and Martha Jones in Stepney and they could be in the 1841 census in or around that area.

      If this is your James (his first marriage) then it's a bit difficult - as it seems his chn from this first marriage were not baptised at the time, so there will be no records.

      I haven't been able to locate a likely death for Martha Jones after 1833 but before 1838.
