I've looked Frances up on the 1893 GRO index and she is registered there as Frances Measures Clay.With Measures being a middle name.

I presume that there is no mention of father on Frances's marriage certificate?
Have you checked that Measures isn't a family surname for Ellen?Possibly her mum's maiden name or Grandma's maiden name? Is Frances the name of Ellen's mother or grandmother?
Also, have you asked all other family members whether they can help?Sometimes aunts and uncles and their children know things that are kept from the immediate family.
By coincidence, there is a Francis Measures (b 1857) in Ashby on the 1911 census!
Good luck in your search!
