I think tis is their marriage and the family in 1841. There is just one problem on the census both Thomas and Mary are listed as being born outside Hampshire. Secondly there are no parents list on the marriage. I tried finding them in 1851 in hope of finding their birth county (s) perphaps someone will have more luck

I should have said but I have a detailed tree on Thomas and Mary on Ancestry, however the trail goes cold over their births, I know Thomas wasn't born in Portsea, although Mary Patrick snr was, she was married to a William Patrick, their daughter says she was born in Bow London, but if look on another census she ticks the box for being born overseas. It's a real mystery, the grandson Rear Admiral Thomas John Spence Lyne writes in his book that on his paternal side they are related to Thomas Lyne who Captained HMS Argus, he died in Westbourne Sussex, it tried but couldn't make a link another interesting fact is that Thomas Lyne (1800-1855) could read and write.
Thanks for your help
