Did Rhoda marry? If so a father may be mentioned.

Is this her?:

Sep 1876 N. Aylesford 2a 675
WILSON Rhoda Sarah
MERRIX George James

Married at Higham, 12 August 1876
Rhoda Sarah Wilson, 21, Spinster, residence Higham, father George Wilson (deceased), Soldier

See it here (image 45 of 128)

If that is her baptism in Islington in 1856, Ellen did not claim the father was called George!

Charlotte was born East Indies.

They are all with the parents 1871. Donít know why it doesnít show on familysearch


Might explain absence in 1861


In 1861 Ellen was with daughters Ellen and Rhoda living in Higham, Kent. Also there at that time was her brother David Wilson. No George.

Possible in 1861
piece 4437 folio 20 page 19

George Wilson, Private R.M. 33 Single, born Maidstone Kent

So not a corporal on that (if it is the right George!)

So George leaves the Marines in 1861, and then joins the Royal Artillery?
