Thomas Butson Alderson married Sophia Hosier in 14 Jan 1874 at Christ Church, South Hackney. Her father is recorded as John.
By 1881 (Class: RG11; Piece: 447; Folio: 45; Page: 11) Thomas is dead. Sophia is recorded as being born in Cheltenham in 1845 and there are three children including two who appear to be born before marriage.I have failed miserably to find ANY record of Sophia before the Marriage
Any pointers please!In 1871 ( RG10; Piece: 1132; Folio: 85; Page: 13) Thomas (recorded as "Married") and his son John are Boarders in Portsea, Hampshire. Also in same house possibly appear to be Sophia's parents.
