The public tree on ancestry, owner roy_philpott says abouy James marriage to Emma Bridges
 " Marriage December 1873 Dover (Folkestone)
BMD Volume 2a 1608. Household members include Emma's father and another James Philpott. Is this "uncle" James or the mythical father of James?"
If it was young James' father then he would be in the column for father of the groom and his occupation given. Do you have this marriage certificate? Even if down as father it isn't necessarily so.

A marriage certificate doesn't show household members so are they referring to the witnesses to the marriage? If so then the James 'uncle' is likely to be the one living next door to Elizabeth and young James in 1851.

The tree also has Elizabeth Relfe marrying Francis Philpott in 1831 St Giles without Cripplegate City of London and no proof of a remarriage to a James Philpott

I see the 1851 census has Elizabeth and young James living next door to a James Philpott, his wife Susanna, daughters  Maria c1847 and Alice c1850
I wonder if this is a relative of hers. If she is a widow as she says then James is a brother-in-law? but if she is trying to save face and was not married then is James a brother?
Cheriton and Sandgate are both in the Elham registration district.

On the GRO index there is a birth reg for a James Philpott June 1/4 1843 registration district Maidstone vol 5 page 283 mother's maiden name not shown which usually means an illegitimate birth.
Is the area you are looking at in the Maidstone reg dist?

Hi David
How do you know Elizabeth's surname is Reife? Where is it recorded? There are no births recorded for a James Philpott with that mmn on the GRO index 1844 +/-  1 year.

I agree with all the posts on here and would just like to say that the most important thing you can do for your daughter is to give her a strong sense of self. She would  be horrified if you binned your research.
How you react to criticism will be noted by her so you need to stand tall, look the cretins in the eye and inform them that you have listened to them but strongly disagree and will not be taking their criticisms on board. Then walk away smiling.
Do not engage with them or give them the reaction they are waiting for as it only feeds their ego and you won't win. There are many people who feed their own sense of self by trying to take others down. It never makes them any happier.

I can't see a divorce for them on ancestry's England & Wales, Civil Divorce Records, 1858-1916.
At that time it is much more likely that they both just went their own ways as most in their position couldn't afford the cost of divorcing. So quite likely that Vincent and Ada never married or of they did it would be in the US where nobody knew them.

I see on the 1911 census Francesco says he is married but Sarah is down as single and is the  housekeeper so he is not pretending  to be married to Sarah.

Vincent Joseph Pent born 24 July 1875, nationality US. Draft Registration in New York, wife Ada Louise Pent

In 1915 they had a daughter age 5 with them Viola Rose Mary Pent. She married Philip G Becker in June 1934
The 1900 census says they immigrated in 1895. I haven't found a marriage for them on FreeBMD.
