Who was first wife of Thomas Spicer - Lucy Dore or Lucy Lovelock (mother of Henry)

+2 votes
Am getting two possibilities - Lucy Dore or Lucy Lovelock.  I thought they may be the same Lucy with different surnames but the Dore's and the Lovelock's then go off to quite different ancestory lines.  Any clues?  Preferably with some story or evidence to support the info.  Thanks.

Thanks so much for your helpful and speedy response.  I wonder if you are able to clarify for me that "Lucy" and "Louisa" would be the same person (ie Lucy is the named mother on the birth certificate and Louisa is named as Thomas' wife in the census 11 years later. Any suggestions/theories most welcomed.  I appreciate you taking the time to help me.  Kind regards.

I'm sorry, I don't have access to birth certificates and I don't know that there are any for the early 1800's - parish records being the main source.

I have checked about 8 genealogy databases and made several searches in Google but I haven't found anything new I can add.
