Gibel has asked me to check in the LRO - St Bridget's Wavertree has the baptisms in original form so you would need to make an appointment to view them, emailing is the easiest way

However, marriages are since 1902, original form go up to 1945. 

If the church is still in existence I would ask them if they hold the recent registers there.

Yes this information was from Public Member Trees with no sources quoted which is why I would never accept others research without verifying it for myself, sort of proves it with two conflicting birthplaces doesn't it?

One entry has his birth      Birth abt 1780 in Cork Ireland and  Death 22 May 1832 in Berbice, Mpumalanga, South Africa, occupation Protector of Slaves in various British colonies.

Sophia's baptism on 10 March 1782 at St Sepulchre, Holborn, London gives date of birth as February 11 or 14.  Parents Thomas Chandler and Sarah.

Another tree has      Birth 23 Sep 1754, baptism 20 October in St Sepulchre Holborn, London, England and     Death 1832 in Berbice, Guyana.  Parents listed this time are John Power and Mary Hayward

Another tree has David's son as
Edward Rawdon Bingham Power     Birth abt 1812 in Thames Ditton, Surrey, England     Death 4 Aug 1886 in Heywood Lodge, Tenby, Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales and marriage to Ellen Louisa Stone June 1863 in Middlesex.

Another tree has their son as     

Thomas Charles Chandler Power     Birth 1819 in Cheshunt, Hewrtford, UK.     Death 1876 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. and married Eugenie Elizabeth Curgenven in 1845 Colpetty, Columbo, Ceylon.

None of these should be taken for granted without doing your own research.

Hi welcome to the forum, I'm glad you two have made contact.  I believe you will need to make about three posts before you can send pm's so you are nearly there, just respond to this post.

You are right I have no connection, just the pleasure of being able to do a look up for somebody.  I can only think, after all this time that I discovered the original on Ancestry in their London Metropolitan Archives database - yes I have just checked and the entry is there.

There are no specific details as to addresses
That's a shame, was hoping to check the address.  Had no luck so far sorry.

Have we an address from the marriage cert and any witnesses?

Many documents open in Google docs if you have a gmail account, email it to yourself there and try it.

Yes it was, but not sure of the copyright rules whether they have changed for the 1911 census so I won't post the details.

Ancestry have them mistranscribed as Owins.  Your local library may well have a subscription to Ancestry you could use - don't forget to take a flashdrive with you, saves printing out.

Later she is single and still at home with a bunch of siblings and widowed father.  Assuming you may have a subscription, check the name Owins rather than Onions.
