You need Westminster Parish records! Then you could find out if Abraham was a bachelor at the time of his marriage and check witnesses etc.
We've been hoping that Ancestry will put more Westminster records online for ages maybe it'll happen one day!

There are a lot of mentions of the Gorringe family of the London Lives website - images of documents, too. Abraham's daughters, Ann and Sarah Gorringe, were admitted to the St Martin's workhouse. There is a report of a book being stolen from Abraham's shop, too.

I've only done a quick search. A more thorough search may reveal more about Abraham and Ann's life.

Ann and Abraham's daughter Sarah, mentioned in my first post on this thread as blind, is in and out of the workhouse many times.

This link takes you to the trial of Mary Edwards (see second column) at the Old Bailey in 1719. She is accused of stealing a gold ring and money from Jacob Garring. May be connected to Abraham Gorringe?
