Forkes or Fawkes

Classification: Query
I to am somewhat confused over the spelling of the name
Fawkes, I have a marriage certificate dated October 19 1878 between John Forkes (how it is spelt on the certificate) and Sarah Quinn. Johns birth place is listed as Denham
England, Sarah as Bamsly Yorkshire. His parents were Samuel Forkes and Hannah Sands. John and Sarah moved to Australia and on the birth certificate of their son it is spelt as Fawkes. Since then we have all used this spelling, I have not been able to find any information using either spelling, any help would be highly appriecated.
