If you go to Find My past and locate the Marriage, then follow the link to order a copy from the GRO Southport Lancashire, you will probably find the names of the respective fathers; and of witnesses who are often relatives.

This appears to be it, being in the expected Quarter-

Volume no: 26
Page no: 453
MarriageFinder: James Bevan married one of the following people:

BEVAN, David
HOPKIN, William

There was some duplication in references, hence the apparent selection of spouses!


The 1841 UK Census is also available on that site, so you may be able to find the family on it; and if the fathers have unusual first names, possibly their respective parents and any siblings.

You should also try to get copies of the respective Death Records of James and ann, presumably from the South Australian Archives, as these may also have the names of the parents, similar to Scottish Death Records, in the Statutory/Civil Registration series.
