in Genealogy Help by
Please provide a link to the profile. Thanks.
Mm.  Found profile has only one child so I'm not sure if I found the profile you're referring to.
I added details found by Frank to that profile.
Looking at that Goudhurst website it seems clear that there were two John and Elizabeth Standen's producing offspring at the same time. This would account for those predating the marriage and their otherwise extraordinary fecundity. It seems churlish to complain when people have put a huge amount of effort into digitizing records for free but I'm sure the original register must have distinguished between them in some way but without images we can't separate them.

Some of these are presumably theirs. The mysterious final column (which I don't see on the webpage) is presumably birth date.

Standen Thomas 28 Dec 1800 John Standen Elizabeth  
Standen Richard 31 May 1801 John Standen Elizabeth  
Standen Samuel 11 Dec 1801 John Standen Elizabeth  
Standen Elizabeth 20 Feb 1803 John Standen Elizabeth  18 Dec 1802
Standen Elizabeth 1 May 1803 John Standen Elizabeth  27-Mar-03
Standen James 15 Apr 1804 John Standen Elizabeth  6 Mar 1804
Standen William 17 Mar 1805 John Standen Elizabeth  6 Feb 1805
Standen Ann 5 Oct 1806 John Standen Elizabeth  18 Sep 1806
Standen George 5 Jun 1808 John Standen Elizabeth  20 Apr 1808
Standen Charles 17 Sep 1809 John Standen Elizabeth

Mm.  This 1799 marriage then doesn't work for the births you found that predate this marriage. If this is the same John Standen father of the children you found then he had an earlier wife also named Elizabeth.

There is a John Standen marriage to Sarah Moon in 1793.

Mm. Not sure why the rest aren't clickable.
Several of these children were born before their 1799 marriage. Earlier wife also named Elizabeth?
