groom's father's name:

reference number:


and then this baptism:

name: Edward Harwood
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 23 Jan 1825
baptism/christening place: ROCKBEARE,DEVON,ENGLAND
birth date:
birthplace:
death date:
name note:
race:
father's name: Edward Harwood
father's birthplace:
father's age:
mother's name: Mary
mother's birthplace:
mother's age:
indexing project (batch) number: C05157-1
system origin: England-ODM
source film number: 916929
reference number:


then this census:

1881
RG11 Piece / Folio 0840 / 18 Page 1
Census Place East Molesey, Surrey, England
Dwelling Bridge Road
Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability
Edward HARWOOD Head M Male 55 Rockbeam, Devon, England Tailor
Elizabeth HARWOOD Wife M Female 55 Hampton Court, Middlesex, England
Ann RICHARDSON Visitor U Female 55 Hampton Court, Middlesex, England Dressmaker
Joshua MENHAM Visitor M Male 56 London Westminster, London, Middlesex, England Surveyor


and this baptism:

name: Elizabeth Harwood
gender: Female
baptism/christening date: 11 Apr 1819
baptism/christening place: St. Andrew's, Holborn, Middlesex, England
birth date:
birthplace:
death date:
name note:
race:
father's name: William Harwood
father's birthplace:
father's age:
mother's name: Mary
mother's birthplace:
mother's age:
indexing project (batch) number: I01381-6
system origin: England-EASy
source film number: 374357
reference number: yr 1818-1820 p 95


In the 1881 census I think Elizabeth is Edward's 2nd and it's possible his 1st spouse was Elizabeth's sister, Sophia. Can we prove that? Are they cousins? That is are William, father of Elizabeth, and Edward who married in Devon in 1824 brothers?


Regards,

Dave
