help or advice wanted - Barnet Burns


Active member
I am wanting help with the following please. This borders on a brickwall for me as I have searched all my records and am hoping someone out there can help.

I have a Barnet Burns marrying a Bridget Cain, 1st June 1835, Christ Church Greyfriars Newgate, London. Basically I am trying to find out if there were any children for these two. Because in the 1841 census I find Barnet lodging with the Kay family, no sign of Bridget, however there is a woman named Rosina Crowther who Barnet marries by the time the 1851 census comes round. I found them lodging with the Pluck family and she is now Rosina Burns aged 50 and Barnet aged 44. These dates are a little out.
Am I right in thinking Bridget may have died between 1835 and 1841, was Rosina just calling herself Mrs Burns.

I am looking for any marriage between Rosina and Barnet and a death for Bridget. Of course Barnet could have been a bigamist but I am pretty sure he wasn't. If I am being to greedy out of the things above, I need a death or what happened to Bridget is the most important. Thank you.
