A James Loveday married Mary Impey 29 August 1824, but that was St. Pancras, Old Church, Middlesex (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKPT-4QT).
Thank you!  I'll consider this as a possible match.  The date seems about right.
Just FYI "Shirburn" noted for its castle,  seat of the Earls of Macclesfield,  has always been in Oxfordshire (Oxon) and not Wiltshire (Wilts).
Thanks for the correction! Sloppy work on my part!

Mary's birthplace was Watlington, Oxfordshire (about 2 miles from Shirburn) so I'm not too optimistic about that London marriage. Her age was 48 in the 1851 census but unfortunately there was a flood of Marys born in October 1802 in Watlington:

And there are a couple of Mary Anns too.
