Biggish gap between an 8 y old and a 3 year old.

I'd be looking for second marriage(s)

I think it is 36, 30, 16, 1


ADD - As Pauline says, I thought it might be Edward's daughter from a previous relationship, when I saw it

On the image, Edward looks very clearly aged 36 and Martha 16.

I agree. Surely Ann must be 36 too.

If that were the case, Edward (born 1835) marries unknown, and Martha is born  1855.

Unknown dies, and Edward marries Anne, (born 1841) some time between 1855 and 1861 and Mary is born in 1861.

No Martha, without surname on the Great Ness baptisms for 1856 +/- 2

Baptism 1856  in Great Hanwood - parents Edward and Margaret. Edward a labourer.

Added - not too convinced about this though.

No.

Mary is there, 13 may 1861 and Andrew, 1st Nov 1863,

This could mean that Edward and wife 1 lived elsewhere. Or didn't bother baptising.
