Does this marriage indicate his middle name as being Edward or Edwards?

Yes, it's Edward. You can view a snippet of the printed book on Google Books

Hi James.....

You can probably access this one......  ;)

Mary Edward baptised 11th June 1873 at St Anne, South Lambeth.
Parents  = Beverly Edward and Boley Edward.


Dee

Oh!

If this is correct, then this was an adult christening.  Mary Edwards married my 2nd Great Grandfather in 1880 and it clearly indicates her father as Beverley Edwards.  She was born about 1855 in Newington.

Also, if this is indeed her, then this clearly indicates that she was the daughter of Buley and not of Eleanor (which makes me not related to Eleanor at all, which is as I expected).

This therefore means it is likely the two eldest children were born and christened with the surname Lodington, as children of his wife.  Whilst all future children after this were known as Edwards, as they were children of Buley Gerrard.

The question still needs to be asked though: what happened to his wife?

Addendum: I just checked the image and it says it was an adult christening and gives her birth date as 9 December 1854.  So this is indeed her!

Thanks, Dee.  It takes other peoples eyes to often find something I had not.  Especially as it is a source I have access to.

I still cannot find all the other children's birth registrations though...

Hmm, curiouser and curiouser.

This still begs the question who Mary Ellen is...

I do not believe there are two Thomas Edward Lodington's.  All information seems to indicate just the one.

Re: Candler Edwards b. crica 1858

Name:  William Candler Edwards
Birth:  Sep 1857 - St George Southwark, Surrey
Volume: 1d
Page: 143



there is also this one but i think he maybe too late AND he has the wrong parents AND he has a H in Candler whilst William above doesn't :

Name: John Chandler Edwards
bp.  6 Jan 1860
Father's Name: John Edwards
Mother's Name: Mary Ann Edwards
Saint Anne, Limehouse  Tower Hamlets


 

Ah!

The first one could indeed be him.  The name Candler is especially uncommon and is one that pops up in the Lodington family a few times.  Beverley Purton Edwards Lodington had a brother called Candler Lodington.

I have no idea where the name originated from though.  I suppose it could have come down his mother's line but I have yet to get further with this.

I shall note this down and will probably get the certificate eventually.

Ah, maybe that is why I haven't been able to find him on the census!  This was only a year into his marriage too!

His wife should still be around though.

Thanks, Shaun.

I don't suppose somebody could also check the GALE Newspaper Archive for any Lodingtons?

I am fairly sure there maybe some interesting notes in there.  Especially as some of the family were clergyman, solicitors, clerks in the Bank of England &c.

If you just put Lodington into the Gale archives there are loads of hits.
I think you really need to get access to it yourself.
One jumped out to me dated 26/3/1836 in deaths  Ann wife of Thomas Lodington age 65, no further information given.
Cross Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Jennings Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Steel Byfield Northants,  Rogers Northants,  Wheeler Oxon,  Roberts Oxon,  Bonham Oxon/ Middleton Cheney Northants,  Maycock Northants,  Abbott Northants , Newman Northants, Buckingham Bucks, Hart Warks, Newth Gloucs.

Thanks, Jay.

I did presume there would be a lot of hits.

I shall try and narrow down the search criteria.

Any hits for Thomas Lodington and Thomas Edward Lodington would be useful.  Plus any marriage notices.

I am experiencing Internet problems right now, so I cannot do any searches whatsoever.  Hopefully later this evening all will be fine again.
