Familysearch has a database, England, Cheshire, Marriage Bonds and Allegations, 1606-1900. We cannot doubt that this relates to the same couple, though the information is rather different. It reads:

Robert Job
Event Type: Intended marriage
Event date: 24 Feb, 1821
Event place: Cheshire, England
Spouse's name: Elizabeth Keightley

It appears as though the marriage was originally intended to be held in Cheshire, but as we can see from the marriage record above, dated three days later, it was held in Liverpool.
NoteElizabeth Keightley Job appears in the England 1851 census at Liverpool. She is shown as a widow, age 54, and as being born in Liverpool. She has with her five children (certainly not all of her children) and they are shown as being born in St. Johns, Newfoundland.

Memorial University in St. Johns has a PDF document dated 2016 and which tells of a John Job who went to Newfoundland in 1780 as an apprentice to Samuel Bulley, a merchant from Devonshire. Job later became Bulley's partner. The paper tells that by 1839 other family members were involved. The busines involved a fleet of ships which carried different cargoes, but shipped cod to the West Indies and Brazil.

Apparently at least some family members might spend a season in Liverpool and then spend time in Newfoundland. We have no direct information to do with Robert and Elizabeth, but it must have been something relating to this arrangement that was the occasion for the children of Elizabeth present in Liverpool in 1851 all being shown as born in Newfoundland.

One of Elizabeth's sons is John Samuel Job and it is his line that is of particular interest here.
