John Wallaker, 1864.

I looked at the marriage cert of Martha Wallaker in October 1864 at Foulness Island in Essex from the SEAX website and my ancestor John Wallaker was a witness to the wedding. He was her brother.

I know in February 1866 John Wallaker married Oxfordshire born Sarah Brain in Lambeth, London. As he was a waterman I believe he worked in London and met her on visits. Sarah appeared to be living in London when she married John Wallaker and after they did wed she moved to Foulness.

John is on the 1891 census in Essex but the census sheet was collected in Woolwich London by John, who filled out the form for the small ship he was on.
