Marriage lookup - William Bayley and Esther Giles, Darleston.

I don't know if any one can help? - I can't find anything on IGI.

I'm looking for a marriage between William Bayley b 1813-4, West Brom and Esther Giles b 1813-4, Darleston. Their oldest son (according to 1841 census) was born in 1838, so that should put their marriage anywhere between 1830 - 38. They lived all their married lives in Darleston. (Sorry, I'm not familiar with Brum, so I don't know which churches that would incorporate)

Hope it's not too much of a long shot!!!!!:rolleyes:
