<<this paragraph was in a newspaper of Nov 1851 and the first instancce that I know of with Mr H marrying is in March of
1852 in Marylebone>>
Those dates could be quite consistent with one-another. It all depends on your source for the March 1852 marriage: was
that the GRO indexes?
If so, then "March 1852" doesn't mean March 1852: it means the quarter ending with March 1852, that is Jan, Feb or Mar
Also, that doesn't mean that the marriage took place during that quarter, but that it was registered centrally in that
quarter. Various administrative delays in passing paperwork on could mean that a marriage (or birth or death) could take
place in one quarter but be registered centrally in the next. So it is possible that the marriage took place in mid
November but appears in the March quarter.
Of course, if your source wasn't the GRO indexes then that isn't the explanation.
