Notes on the possible sister to this Edward Machin

In April 2013 -
Ancestry.Com had a few days of [free] viewing marriage records. I spent some time on the Machin's with just one very interesting development…
An Elizabeth Machin & John Morgan have a marriage dated 19th July 1783 - "The Bann's" indicates that Elizabeth was of the Parish of "St John, Horselydown, Bermondsey, Southwark", and that John Morgan was of the Parish "St Botolph Aldgate"…
If they were around twenty years of age at marriage their birth-dates are about 1763...
We have THIS - Edward [married to Mary Shenston] being born about 1765…
The Question is: Is our Edward & this Elizabeth brother & sister?

We further analyse the clues:

An Elizabeth [nee Machin ???] "Morgan", was a witness to Edward & Mary's marriage at St Dunstan's, Stepney…
Edward & Mary's first child was named John "Morgan" Machin and their third being named Elizabeth "Morgan" Machin…
This all looks like a very cosy family to me and it appears that our Edward had a close bond to this [possible a sister] Elizabeth & her husband John Morgan...
This also indicates that the earlier Machin family could have been native to the South London [Bermondsey neighbourhood, -- South of the River] and married with families Morgan, Shenston, and maybe Gregory of London's east end, [Aldgate, St Georges in east, Stepney, etc, -- North of the River]…
