Mary Jane MARTIN née EVELEIGH died on 23 Feb 1929 in Battersea. She was buried on 01 Mar 1929 at Morden Cemetery.

I think James is dead by 1911, as in the 1911 census Mary Jane MARTIN (57) is a widow and house keeper, living in Wheatsheaf Lane, Lambeth.

And in 1921, she is a general domestic servant aged 67 living in Wandsworth Road, Lambeth.

I am beginning to wonder whether for some reason, he died outside South London. Or maybe in an asylum.

I am not aware of any children. They married late in life. According to their marriage certificate, James was 39 and a bachelor, Mary Jane 41 and a spinster.

And indeed a baptism of Mary Ann Ward, c1820.

There is a baptism in Dec 1820 in Marylebone for a Mary Ann to James & Sarah, but James is a labourer.

Its proving very difficult to pin down any definitive information. Many tenuous links, but little certainty.

I'm still struggling to find this death. Any insights always welcome.

Kay - precisely. I have seen the banns, which as you say don't specify her marital status. We really need the register. It is my understanding that the wedding doesn't have to be in the same parish as the one the banns were published in. But then I am an old atheist, who knows very little about church procedure.

Another thought was trying to find Mary Ann COLLINS/WARD in 1851 to see if she was married. She was 42 in 1861, so would have been 32 in 1851 and probably married.

Many thanks for the help.

Frustrating that there should be a gap in the burial records. Not sure how to overcome that.

With regard to marriages, there seem to be two possibilities: Mary Ann COLLINS and Mary Ann WARD.

Of course, if Mary Ann COLLINS was a widow, she could have been One and the same as Mary Ann WARD. But to confirm that we would need to see a register with her father's name on it.

I am revisiting what happened to Walter, as I do periodically. I just wondered if anyone had any new insights. He clearly didn't die in childhood, so I would have expected him to have surfaced somewhere after 1851.

My route was through John Robert EVELEIGH, who married Georgina ROWE in 1853.

Slowly putting the family tree together, still remember the help you gave me with "Frank".
