There is no mention of fanny here but maybe she was employed at the address given in her marriage certificate or it could have been a relitives address

Hi Gwen,

Thanks. Gone through Perry Street no sign of her. There was another one in 1861 but the census was damaged so only got surname pob, occ (Marylebone, though dont thinks it that one).

Will go through the info you gave and see if I can make anything out of it.
