New member introducing myself

Hi,

I'm researching the Welch family.

Back in the 17/18 century, a marriage is entered in the English birth registry twice for a couple with the same names:

1714 in Marden Parish, Kent, for the marriage between William Grigsby and Mary Austin. In my family tree, this can only match Wm Grigsby DOB 1686.

1744 in Pembury, Kent, for the marriage between William Grigsby and Mary Austin. In my family tree, this can only match Wm Grigsby DOB 1718.

The only explanations I have for this are: 1) 2 different Wm G and 2 different Mary A. The names are both not unusual  for ths corner of England; and 2) At least one of them is a remarriage.

Have you got a solution to this situation?
