I think I found some interesting information.

There are a few John Marlow online pension records but one stands out. However it seems too close to the date that Honora Marlow death in 1865 listed as widow? and he is a Greenwich pensioner before 1864 in the Census?

Name:    Private John Marlow
Service End Year:    1864
Regiment:    Eighty Seventh REG. OF R. I. Jusiliers
Regimental Number:    717

Then I found https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/87th_(Royal_Irish_Fusiliers)_Regiment_of_Foot

It was posted to Gibraltar in 1866 and to Malta in 1868.

On his childrens baptisms in Portsmouth he is described as 'Sgt. Royal Marines'.

Could Private John Marlow of Royal Irish Fusiliers have been son of John & Honora? He would have been around 40.

That would make sense.

I am trying to view the source image from the index but it won't let me start Fold trial.

I've found a few on the index I didn't find years ago when I searched.

Name:    William Marlow
Age:    21
Birth Date:    abt 1863
Birth Place:    Cork
Service Start Year:    1884
Regiment:    the Royal Irish Rifle
Regimental Number:    R.I.R/871
Attestation Paper:    Yes

That would appear to be Stephen William Marlow's son.

Closest I can find is:

Name: Hannah Persels
Marriage by Bann 19 May 1811
Chilvers Coton, Warwickshire, England
Spouse: John Marlow

Would only make sense if her birth date on the census was out by quite a few years and the transcript mentions other local parishes.

I'm searching now for any John Marlow marriages and will compare one by one.

I have found the actual death date and burial date before ordering the certificate.


02 February 1865 & 06 February 1865.

Is it likely the GRO one from that date would have a maiden name?

Simple answer is no - English death certificates simply stated name of individual, when/where they died, cause of death, and name of the informant of the death.

I am ordering the certificate now. At least it may confirm any of the census birth dates or places.

So Honora may not have been born in Cork after all?
Ann Connor, the bride at the marriage in Dublin at which a witness was Honora Marlow may have been her sister or cousin?
John Connor, father of Honora at 1798 baptism in Northamptonshire may also have been in military, like Honora's husband. Britain was at war with France. The United Irishmen sought support from Napoleon's France for their planned uprising. 1798 was the year of rebellions in Ireland, culminating in a French invasion. Extra troops were sent to Ireland from Britain throughout the 1790s to keep order and protect the country against an invading French army. If John Connor was a militiaman or regular soldier he could have been backwards and forwards across the Irish Sea and moving around Ireland and Britain. A number of wives accompanied their husbands.  Honora may have been mistaken about her place of birth. Cork may have been the first place she remembered living in.
 Do you know the name of John Marlow's regiment? His father may have been in same regiment as Honora's father. Were there regiments stationed near Oxhill in 1798?

I'm looking into this still. Thank you for the information.

I have found the birth certificate for William Charles Marlow. Born 3rd March 1864 (Registered 23rd March). 7 Union Place. Canal Bank. Rathmines, Dublin South, Dublin.

Father  confirmed as Stephen William Marlow. His occupation was Private 10th Hussars. Mother was Elizabeth Farey.

This all adds up with existing data but wondered if the addresses and father rank occupation helps in the search for Honora ancestry?
