I've viewed the images and pob for Elizabeth are as shown.

An error or a new wife? A large number of William Dixons.

I don't have William's marriage. Daughter Emily is the connection to my tree.

William Dixon
Spouse's Name Elizabeth Griffiths
Event Date 14 Dec 1840 St. Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham, Warwickshire
Father's Name James Dixon
Spouse's Father's Name Edward Griffiths
Can't find a birth in Warwickshire for an Elizabeth Griffiths but there was an Elizabeth Griffiths baptised 1821 in Newburn (about 6 km from Newcastle) parents Edward and Sarah Griffiths.

I have found the following children born to Edward and Sarah
William 1813
Sophia 1815
Charlotte 1818
Benjamin 1823


Edward Griffiths/Sarah Finny Newburn 7 April 1806

Can't find a birth in Northumberland for a Sarah Finny but there is one in Burton upon Trent

Sarah Finny 1779 Henry and Elizabeth

Possibly worth consideration

Thanks Emeltee.

Name Elizabeth, age 10 years older, no death in Essex 1861 - 1871, no baptism in Warwickshire adds up to some doubt about pob in 1861.
