Henry Banyard to Annie?

I am looking for any information on Annie's last name. Henry was about 20 years older than her. I don't have any dates for the marriage but Annie was born about 1867...I think! Henry's was about 1844.
thanks Mary

Hello Mary,

One very late possibility, registered July-Sept in Fulham district:

Marriages Sep 1899
Banyard Henry Fulham 1a 737
Hounsom Annie Fulham 1a 737


Hi Mary

BANYARD, Henry 56 1845 Night-Watchman Exhibition Fulham
BANYARD, Annie Wife 34 1867 Colnbrooke Middlesex
BANYARD, George 19 1882 Store-Houseman Army C Stores Camden Town London
BANYARD, Nellie 10 1891 Fulham London
BANYARD, Albert 0 (6 MOS) 1901 Fulham London
HOUNSOM, Lydia dau 10 1891 Chelsea London
FOOT, John son 7 1894 Fulham London

Piece: 67 Folio: 14 Page:19
Registration District:Fulham
Civil Parish: Fulham
Address: 17, Rectory Road, Fulham London

This one raises two questions:

What is Annie's maiden name?

How to explain FOOT?

HOUNSOM, Lydia 10 1891 Chelsea London

I'm stuck. I can't answer either of them. :)

Births Dec 1844
BANYARD Henry Kensington 3 263

Possible parents Frederick Matthew & Elizabeth.

But where is he in 1881?

There is a Colnbrook in Buckinghamshire - then moved to Berkshire. Part of it in Stanwell in Middlesex. So it would be RD Staines if both Colnbrook and Middlesex are correct.

Is Bowden a clue?

Hi everyone

Wow! thanks for all the info. I did see a census with the Hounsom name and I noticed that John Foot was born before Henry and Annie married so is it the her second marriage? It is Nellies (Winifred Nell Banyard) parents I am interested in so if that is the case then who is her mother? And is Hounsom Annies first married name??? So many questions. Well that sends me down a whole other track to search. Nellie is my father in laws mother and apparently they didn't ever see or get to know that side of the family. I wonder why?

Hello Mary,

At the moment I think we are all stuck.

I can't prove FOOT or HOUNSOM or any other is the maiden name because I can't find marriages or baptisms to support any choice.

One possibility would be to get a copy of a certificate from GRO. If you want to do that then we can provide details and suggest which one would be the most likely to help.
