A Marriage and Two Christenings Nowhere to be Found


Active member
Could anybody try to help with the following please?

Thomas Twamley married an Elizabeth probably between 1825 and 1830.
According to the 1851 census, Thomas was born in Warwick and Elizabeth was born in Isington, Hampshire.
In the 1841 and 1851 censuses they were living in Lambeth (Surrey/London)

There is a marriage for a Thomas Twamley at about the right time at St. Martin in the Fields, Westminster, but this was to an Ann Bunney.

Thomas and Elizabeth Twamley had two children.
(1) A daughter Elizabeth born about 1828 and according to the 1851 Census she was born at Blackwater in Hampshire. Cannot find a christening.
(2) A son Henry born about 1830 supposedly in Westminster, but again cannot find a christening.

Thomas died in 1852 in Lambeth. Elizabeth died in 1869 in Lambeth. However I can't find Elizabeth in the 1861 census. I suspect she may have gone to live with her daughter (Elizabeth) who's married name was Allen (husband = William Allen). I've got Henry in the 1861 census, and his mother isn't there with him!

If anyone can help with the Thomas to Elizabeth marriage; christenings for Henry and Elizabeth (daughter); and Elizabeth (mother) in the 1861 census, it would be really appreciated.

Many Thanks.
