Elijah Whittuck married OR lived with Sarah Speedy – I have not found a marriage in Somerset for them.

I can't see an marriage for them either  ??? The only one I could find was 1868 Gravesend for a Sarah Ann Speedy she married John Thomas Miles, and her father named John
There are two for a Sarah Speed 1871 Shepton M / 1874 Bridgewater but neither married an Elijah

If that is the correct Elijah married to Elizabeth (nee Ashman) on 1861c
is it possible that he was still married to Elizabeth and he and Sarah just lived together as man & wife  :-\

Do you have Sarah Speedy on the 1871 census ?
Do you have her death entry was it Whit..... or Speedy?

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q276-XG6J
I see from the 1881 census above she's born Westwood

a Sarah Speedy can be found on the 1841c to 1851c census born Westwood with her siblings and their parents William & Ann and she appears as a servant age 19 single on the 1861 census in the household of Elizabeth Werton.

You may already have all the above information as you were asking about Elijah but just in case.....

This looks to be her birth entry
SPEEDY, SARAH  mmn LANE    
1839  J Quarter in THE BRADFORD UNION  Volume 08  Page 273   

I don´t know where this one came from :-[
1884 Elijah & Sarah living at 4 St Georges Terrace, Dolemeads, Lyncombe

Address:   4, S. George's terrace, Dolemeads

Is this his death entry FreeBMD?
