I know this is a very old thread and you probably have more info already, but I thought I'd just throw in that the marriage license says John was not from Partney nor Greasley, but from Alesworth (part of Mansfield).
Though he was a laborer, according to the same document, he must have had some means as he purchased a license, which was usually rather expensive.
