London and Middlesex / Re: Marriage 22 Oct 1860 St George, Hanover Square, London

Great to have this confirmed.   :)     I am pondering/wondering about the possibility that Louisa and William separated shortly before this.  Seems odd that she did not stake a claim to his estate.  Begs the question, maybe she didn't know.

I wonder what happened to the poor fellow dying so young.  I have a possible death in 1878 which matches quite well.

 "William Bowden 25th February.  The  Will of William Bowden formerly of 2 St. James-street Islington but late of 9 Edgar-road Bromley both in the county of Middlesex who died 3 February 1878 at 9 Edgar-road was proved at the Principal Registry by Thomas Bowden of Soulbury near Leighton Buzzard in the County of Buckingham Farmer one of the Executors.  Personal estate under 600.0.0"

Louisa died in 1881 and from Islington.  Her son William was the executor named living in 45 Alfred Street Colebrook Row, Islington; clerk in Post office.  So it would seem the family moved back to London from Buckinghamshire.  I may purchase a death cert. for him but putting off for the meantime.

If anyone can see a mention any any of the newspapers it may be helpful.

Appreciated.  I can see why many prefer the transcribing on FindMyPast.

I'm trying to track down the 1871 census you found for William Bowden / Louisa and son William.
Nothing on Ancestry - you must have found it in FindMyPast ?
Tks

A possible son born in 1861:
BOWDEN, WILLIAM mmn BELL  GRO Reference: 1861 S Quarter in WINSLOW  Volume 03A  Page 424

1871 at Market Square, Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire - RG10/1409/54/17

Louisa Bowden 35 wife b Durham
William Bowden 9 son b Swanbourne, Bucks

In 1881 at 21 Mossford Street, Mile End Old Town - RG11/485/143/54
Louisa Bowden 45 Widow b Durham City
William Bowden 19 b Swanbourne, Bucks

Geez, this went in the wrong direction. Tks everyone.   It was worth a try.  She would have had Durham as her birth place so def. not the right lady.

As I just found this and it tied in with Mary Mary who died in 1875,  I haven't the death cert.  Just the entry in the "Burials for the parish"  at St James Enfield.
 Gives her age as 68 which is spot on.  If she is a single person then, perhaps it could be her.

Just seen a plaque for 154 Albion Road.  It was built by Thomas Cubitt in 1831.  A Heritage Building Register.
Very impressed.  She had money!  I know her brother did (if this is the right Harriett)

Names don't appear to be connected - (however, will keep this in mind).

However, a Mary Miller (my direct ancestor) was living at 55 Albion Road in 1875 when she died, and she could possibly be Harriett's aunt. 
It would be helpful to know whether this Harriett was a single woman.  Would help to eliminate or not.
