Sarah Lydia Powell nee Toleman 1821 -1886
« on: Tuesday 30 April 19 09:12 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any information about my great great great grandmothers family.
She was born Sarah Lydia Toleman and all I can find out about her is parents were called James and Sarah Toleman.
Sarah Lydia Toleman married Duncan Mc Ara in 1838 she then married my great great great grandfather William James Powell ( 1798 1862) in 1849.
In 1862 she was living at 1 Oxford Street London
Any information about her would be greatly appreciated.

She was a minor, of 1 St Martin’s Lane, when she married Duncan McAra at Christ Church, Newgate St, London on 27 July 1838 - father James Toleman, a “taylor” (tailor).

Witnesses: Richard Dubery and Matilda Knight - have they been traced?

It looks likely she had a brother James Toleman, a tailor like his father, who married also at Christ Church Newgate St in 1832, to Mary Ann Charlotte Millward.
