R Caselton mar 1852/emigration UK-Canada

Hello everyone interested in the Caseltons. In researching my family history, for the name FLEWIN, we stumbled upon the story of Richard Caselton,aged 21, who married Sarah (nee Williams), aged 18, at the parish church at Wilmington, Kent, England, in July 1852. They married in a double wedding with my family member, Thomas Flewin, whose bride was Richard's sister, Jane Theodosia Caselton, aged 19. Both couples then emigrated to Vancouver Island on the west coast of what is now Canada in a five-month sail boat journey via the southern tip of South America (there was no Panama Canal then!). You can find the full story, and pictures of Richard and Sarah, on our family web site at:
Richard and Sarah were the children of a widow, Mary.
In researching through the various records, it seemed possible that the name Caselton may have come from a mis-spelling of the name Casleton which appears against the family in the 1851 census of Wilmington.
Can anyone take the Caselton/Castleton family tree back from Richard and Sarah for me?
