Thanks garstonite and amongd

I don't know where Massey comes from.  The witness at the marriage could be a blood relative of Harriet - perhaps an aunt?  It could be Harriet's mother's maiden name?  Definitely not from the Boyle side.

William Massey Boyle's story is a tragic one.  Orphaned at the age of 10, he became a successful wine merchant - by 1871, the family had a servant, but he was forced into bankruptcy in 1875, and both he and his wife died in 1879, leaving 4 orphans aged 7-12

Sarah Broome, from Stockton.

In 1881, the oldest and youngest of his 4 orphaned children are living with their aunts, Emma and Isabella Boyle; the older son is living with his maternal grandfather, John Broome, in Stockton, but the 2nd daughter/3rd child is in the Warehousemen and Clerks Orphans School at Cheadle.  For the life of me, I can't figure out how 3 of the children were with relatives and the 4th in an orphanage!

Sorry ... I missed the 2nd half of your message.  Sarah died in Stockton in 1st Q of 1879.  It's tempting to think that the bankruptcy led to a separation, which is why he died in Prestwick
