England Marriages 1538-1973 has a marriage in Manchester of a mary Ann Anderson to a John Smith on 11th March 1866 but I can't find it on FreeBMD

Thanks Emeltee.

That's the right Charlotte but I've managed to make an error in that first post.

I thought Frances and Charlotte would have been together in 1871 but that's wrong as Richard died in 1873 as per probate posted.

I have found Richard and Frances together in 1871.

Thanks Emeltee,

I searched and searched FreeBMD looking for a second marriage for Mary Ann but nothing fitted.

Yes, I realised I had got the wrong Frances Anderson in the 1871 Census when I re-read your post and realised that she was married to a Richard, not a Charles. Sorry about that.

Sorry I made that assumption they were together hence the title.

Richard's bother Robert is the one who ended up in Australia.

Eliza c. 14 Apr 1816 Great Budworth, Cheshire
Stephen MORRIS & Mary
CPR database gives the abode/residence for Eliza's birth as Witton in the parish of Gt Budworth.

8th September 1839 at St. Marys the Virgin, Eccles, Lancashire
Robert Anderson - full age , Bachelor , Uphosterer of Pendleton
Eliza Morris - full age , spinster of Pendleton
Grooms father Robert Anderson, Upholsterer
Brides father Stephen Morris , Farmer
witness - Thomas Withnall, Thomas Gorse
married by C B St George

There is a death 21/07/1829 in Witton of a Stephen Morris aged 57.

No idea yet if this is the right Mary (nee Wilkinson).

Eliza died before 1862. Robert arrived in Australia before 1863 but not yet found. Three children found in shipping record and Robert was already in NSW.

'Ida' Departed Plymouth 4 Oct 1863 Arrived Sydney (in quarantine) 18 Jan 1864
ANDERSON Robert 20 Arrival record has 20
ANDERSON Emma 14 Arrival record has 15
ANDERSON Esther 10 Arrival record has 11

None of the family found so far in 1861 - posted previously.

Esther's middle name is Wilkinson - Eliza's mother's maiden name.
