According to IGI Elie (sic) Wimpenny married Mary Earnshey (sic) on 10 Sep 1731 at All Saints, Wakefield.
Does anyone have access to an image of the register and if so is there any indication of their home parishes?
From what I've seen in other parts of the world, all you'll generallyget at that date are the names and the date. Of course, Yorkshire is a foreign country, or so the natives would have it!
No it isn't - it's everywhere else that's foreign.
As to my original question: to take an example, on 24 May 1708 at Almondbury Robertus Rigg married Martha Holyday of the parish of Wakefield. Robert's parish isn't given which implies that it was Almondbury. I'd hope to see the reciprocal notation in the case of a Wakefield marriage if one of the parties were not of that parish - and Wimpenny seems to be an Almondbury rather than a Wakefield name.
I'd think that at that date, you'd be lucky if the rector mentioned where the participants came from. It depends on how 'correct' he was. As I said, from what I've seen transcribing for FreeREG, you'll be lucky to get more than the names and date.
I'll second that; my PR work has all be around Leeds in Yorkshire, and it's obvious from the registers that whoever wrote the record KNEW the people and felt it was a waste of paper and ink to use two lines if he could get it on one.
