It may have been that they were running away from a debt.

Shrewsbury Chronicle 26 March 1897
Dale, Forty, and Co., Birmingham, brought an action against Bernard Rix, Knighton, cheese dealer, for £6 18s 8d for the hire and tuning of a pianoforte in 1896. The action was undefended, and the Judge gave a verdict for the amount claimed.

Which in today's money would be just over £500.

Marriage after Banns in the parish church Knighton, Wednesday 30th October 1878.

Father: George Rix, Cheese Factor.
Roseanna Jones, 19, Spinster, Knighton
