Another direct ancestor who wed in London.

My great, great grandmother was Martha Caroline Quilter born in 1839 in Leigh On Sea, Essex. Daughter of Nathan and Elizabeth Quilter.

She married Henry Stock in Leigh On Sea in 1866. She was a widow. Her first husband was George Samuel Ferguson born 1835 in Leigh. Caroline is on the 1861 census in Leigh with her parents Natha and Elizabeth, a widow. George died in late 1860.

Just out of curiosity I searched for her first marriage today and a Caroline Martha Quilter married in the Sep Quarter of 1858 in St George In The East district in London. On the same marriage page was a George Samuel Ferguson. I have now promptly sent off for the cert. I wonder why they wed in London?

George Ferguson was born in 1833 son of John and Mary Ferguson nee Moss in Essex. He was baptised George Samuel Ferguson.
