    Why might a Thorney, Cambridgeshire record be in a Hampshire or Lancashire record office?

    "England, Hampshire Parish Registers, 1538-1980," database, FamilySearch (
    Code:
    https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:7WSX-DQW2
    : 30 January 2019), Alice Ashworth in entry for Thomas Popple, 15 May 1821; citing Marriage, , possibly other reference information Lancashire Record Office and Hampshire Record Office, England; FHL microfilm .

    Without looking at geography and possible change of boundary, it might be multiple banns announcements in the bride and groom's home parishes with a possible marriage in a third location. That's just a guess.

    just to confuse you more on Ancestry the marriage record is in Northamptonshire Parish Records
    in Ufford which it says Thomas Popple widower is from and Alice Ashworth of Thorney Cambridgeshire:D
