 Joseph 'OMOND'- {

 'Margaret' SINCLAIR
        {
record has 'Margaret' as the first name of Joseph's spouse, with the name of 'Catharine' as

             register entries for the children of this pair have Joseph's wife's first name as 'Catharine'.
              It looks to me like the Registrar accidentally switched the first names of Joseph's spouse with
               the first name of her mother, e.g. that Joseph's marriage was to Catherine SINCLAIR, and
                that Catherine's mother's name may have been 'Margaret'

 James 'ESSING'--[St. Margaret's Hope]
  -married-
 'Margaret TAYLOR'
        {
record has 'Essing & Annal' as the surnames indicated for the marriage register entry, but
            within the entry itself the bride's name is given as 'Margaret TAYLOR'... by my research,
             this is incorrect, as I believe that James ESSON actually married Catherine ANNAL --
              it looks to me like the Registrar accidentally rewrote the name of the bride that was
               notated in the entry just prior to this one in the So. Parish marriage registers (that
                bride's name was Margaret Taylor: see above, July 1836) instead of the actual bride
                 for this particular entry, who was, I believe, Catherine ANNAL
