Which Archer did Eliza marry
« on: Saturday 05 August 17 10:45 BST (UK) »
Eliza Ann Archer married Joseph Salmons in Romford 1857, on the 1861 census Rg09 1069 102 8 they have two children Phoera age 3,and Mary age 1, but also they have two children from I believe Eliza's first marriage Eliza Archer age 9, and Walter Archer age 5. Could someone tell me who was Eliza married to before Joseph and what was her maiden name I cannot find the answer.

I don't think she was previously married.

From the 1871 census where they are in Romford you have the youngest child, Alice born 1870. If you use the GRO site which gives maiden names of mothers you get this:

SALMONS, ALICE  LOUISA     mmn ARCHER

That confirms what I thought, the two oldest children were illegitimate.

Just for information

Eliza Jane Archer baptised 24/01/1852 mothers name only Eliza Ann Archer

Walter baptised George Walter Archer 22/09/1856 same mother

The only reference to a George Walter Archer is (BMD) in March quarter in Romford
