Might it be Carie,perhaps a variant of Cary?The name certainly exists in small numbers in UK censuses.

She seems to be the nearest Rose Ann of approximately the right age in the locality for an 1864 wedding

This is highly speculative as Hemel Hempstead is nowhere on the horizon,but,in the 1851 ands 1861 censuses there is a relative described as Rose Ann,niece(1851) and Rosina,granddaughter resident with a John Smith(c.1785) and wife Susan,interestingly,in Eyke,Plomesgate,Suffolk,which is very close to Aldeburgh.
The references are
1851 HO107/1802/376/8  Mouse Hole
1861 RG09/1174/34/7

It would obviously require George to probably be the son of John.
I can find a George Smith(c.1808),carrier in 1871 in Rougham at reference
1871 RG10/1724/123/12
but I can't as yet connect the two.
Hopefully some food for thought at least

This snippet suggests that William Whiteside was lost at sea.
