Clarisa Ann BENNETT 29 Spinster actress  of 3 Shepherd's Walk , father Henry BENNETT actor

Charles James CHURCH 35 Widower actor of same , father Arthur Church actor 27 Jan 1854 St Leonard , Shoreditch                                               (  corrected father

Witnesses : Benjamin ( Charles  ?) CONQUEST; Emily ( WALTON  ? )

If it was them, it could explain the 1855 baptism entry for daughter, Clara, being so long after her birth.

Maybe someone should write a screenplay based on this thread  ;D.

It just goes to show, peoples names, as recorded, even if on official records, aren't always necessarily what they seem.
