Mary Potter Buckley married George Crampton 17 Aug 1864 St Nicholas Church, Liverpool. Her father named as Mark Buckley, Gardener - his as Reuben Crampton. George Crampton also a gardener.

They appear to have had a daughter called Annie born 7 Sept 1866. Thus far I cannot see this family in a census.

Sorry ive not used this freebmd before! I've got the summary page up which give the year, names and church but cant view anything else?
You may have noticed an asterisk beside Sarah's surname on index. There is a note about * below the results.
When you find the correct marriage click reference number to save it to your records page Then click "View Page" next to it on your records page. This takes you to a transcription of the register page which has that marriage. There you'll see 4 entries for the marriage of Isaac and Sarah, instead of the usual 2, all with same reference number.

Thank you everyone!

Looking at the the Buckley / Potter marriage in QTR 2 and Mary Potter's birth in QTR 2 it looks like Sarah Potter had an illegitimate child who took her first husbands name to seem legitimate.
