I'm only posting this as background, as it covers the questions I was asking myself as I had a look for Sarah for you:

DEATH: Sarah COSTER, death registered Marylebone Sep Qtr 1841 - age 45.
Buried 26 Sep Marylebone, age 45

CENSUS 1841: Census agrees, Sarah Coster age 43 or 45 with Joseph 44
Neither born in County.
Children: Elizabeth 20, Eliza 15, Thomas 13, George 7, Martha 3 all born in County.
There is also a Tho's LANGLEY age 30 in the household, Not born in County.
HO107 - Piece 677/Book 2 / Folio 52/ Pg8

Indicates a year of birth about 1796-98 for Sarah PIERCEY, not in Middlesex

CENSUS 1851: the children Eliza 25, Thomas 23, George 18, Martha 13 are all with their sister Elizabeth who is now married to John Cooper, with 3 children, ( was hoping the youngers might have been with identifiable maternal PIERCEY related family - but wasn't to be)
HO107 - Piece 1490 / Folio 103 / Pg14

DEATH 1849: Other posts  indicate Joseph COSTER died 1849, from Cholera (and that he had remarried Hanna Wheeler, nee Constable in 1846, after Sarah died).

THE CHILDREN:  Couldn't see any PIERCEY witness names on any of the 4 London marriages found for 4 of the 5 children:
Elizabeth married John COOPER 1842
Eliza 'married' Charles CLARK, circa 1853 when first child born?)*
Thomas married Elizabeth WEST 1857 (Elizabeth Cooper, witness)
George married Mary Ann HARMER 1861.
Martha married William HAWKES in 1857

Thanks Ambly.  Charles Clark & Eliza married Sept Q 1851 at Kensington. I have Joseph's death cert and as you say he died of cholera.  George Coster was my GGF. Thanks for the link, I hasd posted on there years ago, Pyramus showed up on several boards but stopped posting or replying to anything a long time ago. The mystery of where Sarah came from (and Joseph too for that matter) goes on.

This marriage ** might name a father for Joseph to trace back his origins but won't help with Sarah  :-\

** Can't see a marriage in 1846

Hi Rosie, I reckoned that too, especially as they are both listed as widowed
