A Britton Broughton was mentioned in 1877 Huddersfield Chronicle as Theatre proprietor.

Which could explain why Eliza was listed as Rose with profession of artist in 1871 :)  Well found Anne

There are many articles relating to Rosa Mayne but as yet, I can't tie her to Eliza.
I thought it may be a stage name but her theatre dates progress long after this 1866 marriage

EDIT:
IT IS HER!
The marriage is announced  in The Era dated 11 Mar 1866.
It has the same date and place for the marriage, names the same Episcopal Minister. ( McNamara)
She is described at Rosa Mayne but Edward is described as : EDWARD KERWYN

Both members of Sangsters Royal Hippodramatic Circus, DUNDEE

Was about to say Dundee, not Dublin, but see you've corrected your post.

Dundee Courier of March 14 1866 mentions Rose and a Mr Kerwin. Courier of March 6 also refers to marriage between Rosa and Edwin Kerwin.

As Eliza's stage name was clearly Rosa Mayne, does the same apply to Edward Kerwin/Canavore?
Or was his  last name actually Kerwyn ?
A wee bit of digging will be on order!

p.173 of the same book mentions the following are living together on 1861 census night: "Bob Chadwick, John Griffiths, the Zamezous, George Knight, Davis Richards, Anthony Powell, and Edward Kerwin" ... can anyone find them?!
