Marriages Dec 1853 Islington 1b 340
SMITH John & RAKER Caroline

Caroline Raker (William Raker) m. 27 Nov 1853 St Mary Islington to John Smith (John Smith) - Parish Church.

Caroline daughter of William & Hester Rakes baptised 3 Apr 1831 Queen Charlton, Somerset

NSW Death 3730/1887 SMITH CAROLINE - WILLIAM - ESTHER - NEWTOWN * 17 Jun

John b. 5 Feb 1830 Clutton, Somerset - James & Elizabeth Smith FHL 1526552 ref 85

Trees have John's death as 1874 in NSW but I doubt that's the right one.

I can't find a John Smith born Clutton in 1830 in 1851 census.
