I did find the 1871 census, but wasn't sure if it was her, but you have found other information, thanks Elaine. But I still don't know what happened after they got married :(

A real mystery!
In 1881 I found the widowed father, Edward, with his 8 younger children but Edward J, Henry and Caroline have all left home. Caroline married George Pyle Bennett in 1878 and I found her with him in 1881 but no trace of Edward J and Henry in 1881 or subsequent censuses.
Also I haven't seen any nephews/nieces who could be their children. They don't seem to have died so I can only think they have emigrated together.
