Waples and variants

I have a William Waples and wife Susannah .....? having a family in Stanwick Northamptonshire and being being buried there. The family continued from there to Finedon and Thrapston. There is so far no trace of William's birth (c1749) or their marriage. Susannah's birth (c 1754).
On the IGI there was a marriage of William Waples and Susannah Battam at Eaton Bray 28 Dec 1737.
I am wondering are these the ones I want. It seems a long distance to have relocated in that period.
I would apprciate if somebody was able to do lookups for me on the surname -
There are a number of variations such as Waples, Walpole, Wapole, Wapples, Warepool.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Glenn
Found the 1737 marriage as you say which is in Eaton Bray Parish Records but as yet am struggling to find any more Waples or similar.
Will search again.

Can you give me some info on how you know that the family lived in Stanwick and the childrens names.

Thanks for looking at this. Most entries were found on the IGI but batch numbers dont seem to compute now.I received some from an LDS staff member. The site Rushden Research group has Stanwick indexes plus others online. Stanwick enties:- William Waples burial 20 May 1799. Susannah Wapples burial 13 March 1820, George Bapt 2 July 1775, William Bapt 30 Jan 1780 age 4, Mary Bapt 18 Jan 1778, Mary Bapt 2 Feb 1798, Sarah Bapt 2 Feb 1798

William 1780 married as WALPOLE but his children were WAPLES
There is another christening which may be relevant but in a different area
William Wapole 18 March 1749 Tickencote Rutland parents John & Elizabeth Wapole
I am willing to contact by email if okay to do so.

Hi Glenn,

Glad to see you still researching our family history!
After a very busy 2/3 years I was thinking I should try and solve a mystery or two to do with our Grandfathers families?
