Re: Marriage, East Stonehouse, 1817
Have looked on Family search for your entry. Its in Bishops transcripts, which are the lists copied from the register and sent every year to the bishop of the diocese, so its been written by the clerk/vicar, but copying the original, and if the original was not clear/badly written a mistake could occur.
also take into account a Liverpool accent, and pronunciation, and a vicar who mishears the name, and you could get the misspelling.
I have put it on my list for when we next go in, and will endeavour to find the original entry.
