"The Free BDM site in UK has Caroline Bareham marrying in March 1855 in Risbridge district, vol 4a page 425 (Risbridge is in Suffolk where George Spooner comes from and which included Clare where Caroline Bareham was born) and the Free BDM site also has George Spooner marrying in March 1855 in Risbridge district, vol 4a, page 425. I think it's conclusive they married in March 1855 probably in Clare, the bride's hometown, but certainly in Suffolk."
