I've now taken out a month's subscription to Ancestry, so should be able to find a lot of those documents.

The main difficulty with Ancestry is that it doesn't like multiple wild cards in searches,which is desireable with so many possible variants.
I am checking out one instance of a John and Hannah with common parents,but,frankly,it may just be a coincidence with no connection able to be proved.

Interesting.....the marriage certificate for Letitia (pretty sure it's the right Letitia) has no father's name. I wonder if that was a purposeful disowning on her part?

Do you mean Letitia Emily Louthin 1884?
I didn't think that marriage certificate was available online.

Yes. It turned up on my Ancestry hints. It's a parish marriage certificate not civil registration of course. It's down as Lenna Emily Lonthin, but if you look at it, it quite clearly says Letitia Emily Louthin.

Whew! What a family! I've now discovered that Letitia's son had syphillis when he was in the army in 1916!

I just received the marriage certificate for Sarah Louthin in Windsor. It's definitely her, so I now know that she was still alive in 1880 and that the coroner's report was also her. Thanks so much everyone for all the help; I would never have got this far without you.
