Hi, Thanks to all who have tried to help. I have recieved an explanation from Westminster Archives which says ...
"Free BMD page 265 gives four names, Chas Porter, Mary Powell, Eliza' Breacker and John Sandy (as there are two marriages per page in the register). From this you know that there are two couples but not which man married which woman. Further searching on Find my past shows that Chas Porter in fact married Eliz' Breacker and Mary Powell married John Sandy" Confused? I was, I always thought that each marriage had a unique reference not one between four people which doesn't help when trying to track down a marriage partner by using their first name and a reference.
Hope this info helps someone else. Lesley
