Notes for Catherine (Spouse 1)
This may seem a stretch but I think this is a possibility.
England Select marriages
Marriage date November 21, 1786 Lanbury Worcestershire John Bickerton and Catharine Dews.
Why I think this is a possibility is as follows.
1) This is a transcription and the transciber may have had difficulty deciphering the hand writing. I can’t find a Lanbury, however Hanbury is about 3 to 4 miles from Upton Warren.
2) Dews could possibly a transcription of Dunn
3) The marriage date is about 1 year before the birth of their child Mary. So it is feasible.

National Burials index indicates Catherine Bickerton, February 6, 1816 , St. Michael, Upton Warren, Worcestershire.
