There is a marriage that sort of fits , in 1777 Saint Michael Bedwardine, Worcester (city), but it is 12 miles SSW of Bromsgrove, and a bit late. But it is the only one in LDS in Worchester any date. So we are only 70% confident  that Mary is Mary Whiteside. But we do believe the trail to Thomas' parents, as we have a christening in Bromsgrove.
Confidence in Mary Whiteside edges up a little when we find that the only christening in LDS is in Hanley Castle 1738, about eight miles S of Worchester. Bride and groom births towns are consistent with a wedding at the big town in between. Her age is just right, and our couple called their first son William. Make it 85% confidence?

Comment from Catherine White (Genes Reunited)

We have different 'fates' for their daughter Mary as I have her marrying a Thomas Sheward at Kidderminster on 22/04/1793 and you have her marrying a John Bowles in 1803. It has been a couple of years since I researched this and I think I decided that she may have been born pre-1781 although christened then (otherwise she would have been a bit young!) There is always an element of guesswork using the IGI.
