Who was husband of Joan (Norys) Cloud (parents of immigrant Wm. Cloud)?

+2 votes
Joan Norys is said to have married 28 January 1615 (South Broom, Wiltshire) to Robert Cloud or William Cloud.  Their son was the immigrant  William Cloud (born 1621; died 1702, Delaware).

However, I have been unable to find the 1615 marriage record to determine whether Joan's husband was named Robert or William.

Also, I'm skeptical that the immigrant William Cloud had a middle name (Robert).  I can find no record indicating he had a middle name.

Thanks Val,

       I've added the source for the marriage.  And that is his findagrave memorial, but I'm not sure that I buy the McCloud story.
Thanks, Ken.  I agree with you on the McCloud story.  I found nothing to substantiate that story posted on findagrave.

I have removed William Cloud as a spouse for Joan Norys.  Added source for marriage (to Robert Cloud) to her profile as well, and removed the "Unsourced" marker.
