I need to find out who Richard Kent's (born about 1810 in Staffordshire, England) parents were. He was married to Sarah Wareham [[Wareham-3688] born about 1813 in Staffordshire. Their marriage date was 3 April 1831.

Also who were Sarah's parents (I seem to think it's not George Wareham and Hannah)

I need the info in order to expand my tree

You have Sarah Wareham's birth as 14 April 1816. I think unlikely as Sarah would have not reached the age of 15 on her marriage 3 April 1831. The marriage date though seems correct.
Apologies Ron, I should have mentioned her christening date was 14 April 1816. It could be she was born anywhere from about 1800 to 1816. That's why I can't actually pin down which Sarah is Richard Kents wife. I was hoping if I could get her parent's names I could find a link.

The 1861 Census states Richard was age 51 & Sarah age 53, both born Fenton, Staffordshire.

There is only 1 possible entry for Richard Kent on the Staffordshire baptism transcriptions at FMP. This is the entry at FamilySearch (Fenton & Longton are next to each other)
