I've searched the Scottish Census records and after quite a search I think I have found an Eliza ROGERS (not Rodgers) age 10 working as an F S which I think means female servant in a household in St.Davids.  She does not appear on the 1841 census with a Rodgers family at all. So I'm no further discovering her parents names which is a pity. I found a Thomas Rodgers in Barony on the 1841 census but no Eliza living with them.

I am going to search the Scottish Censuses to see if I can find Eliza Rodgers in1841.  I am not at all sure who her parents are apart from on Family Search they are listed as Thomas and Martha Mary but I'm not convinced by this. Thank you again for all your advice and help. I have Charles and Eliza living in Houghton Regis Nr. Dunstable in 1851,

Thank you all for your help.  Perhaps it will have to remain as mysterious as to why they got married in Barony in the first place as Charles definitely lived in London. Perhaps Eliza's family moved there after leaving Sligo? Perhaps I'll never know.

I found the marriage in Canada on the Ancestry website of a friend.It is on the Scots in the USA and Canada 1825 - 1875 page.  Charles is my paternal Gt.Grandfather and he was born in Shoreditch England and Eliza Rodgers was born in Sligo Ireland.
As far as I am aware neither of them visited Canada but I do not have the pedigree of Eliza Jane Rodgers.  Charles Readhead was a straw hat maker in London and eventually Luton.

Help please.  The marriage of Charles Ebenezer READHEAD took place on 28/09/1848 at Barony Glasgow to Eliza Jane RODGERS.Certificate obtained. Why is it also shown as happening on the same day in Toronto Canada? Any Thoughts Please.  Thank you

Thank you for all your help.  I've found out several things I didn't know before and will always drive down the Finchley Road knowing that my relatives once lived there. Where Walter and Patty were for the first part of the century and what they were doing will have to remain a mystery.

I've now received the wills of Walter & Patty Kramer.  Walter's is straightforward - he leaves everything to his beloved wife Mrs.JAFFI Elizabeth Kramer nee Cox of 1027 & 1027a Finchley Road NW11.  I believe this must be a spelling mistake.  The will was made while he was in All Saints Hospital about a month before his death and was witnessed by the secretary of the hospital.
Patty's address is given as 40 Oakley Road Luton.  She gives the option to buy the house for 900 within 6 months of her death to her nephew Frank Cox who had gone to live with her. ( I do not know whose son this is.)  She gives her brother Percy Charlie Cox (known as Charlie) a sum not exceeding twice the amount of his weekly wage during the 8 weeks immediately preceding her death.  The rest of her estate she leaves between her surviving sister Emma and her brothers William, Harry, Ernest and Percy and the two children of her deceased brother George namely Ronald and Dorothy Cox.  Thus I conclude that Walter & Patty did not have any children and I thank everyone for their help in shedding more light on this part of my family.

I will tell you who benefits in the wills of both Walter and Patty when they arrive in about ten days time.

On their marriage in 1896 Walter was living at 61 Stuart St. Luton & Patty lived at 14 Villa Rd. Luton.  William Cox was Patty's brother.  She was one of ten children and I believe two of her brothers were killed in WW1. Their parents were (Richard) George and Ann Cox.
