Eliza.....father, John Backhouse. Occ.Dyer. One of the witnesses is Louisa Backhouse.

Just above that marriage, is one for Ellen Backhouse, father John Backhouse. Occ. Dyer. Winesses - William Backhouse & Emily Backhouse.

Both on the 4th June 1892.

Gro site has a birth ref for a James Grant Sep 1860 Hunslet 9b 219 mmn Roebuck.

No marriage found for a James Grant but John Grant married either Martha Roebuck or Martha Secker Sep 1859 Hunslet 9b 249

My money is on Martha Roebuck!
