Looking for someone who might be the marriage witness, this looked intriguing? :-\
A marriage at St Augustine the Less, Bristol
4 April 1880
Thomas Packer, full, Bachelor, Baker, father William Packer, Photographer
+
Rosina Lumber, 20

1881 Thomas is 23, Journeman Baker, with wife and daughter

1891 he is 33 and widowed. Daughter still with him

Sorry if red herring.

Thank you all for your help. I don't think I can go any further on this one.
Jon - it looks likely that the Thomas you found (b.1858 Bristol) could have been Henry's brother, given the occupation of baker and the father's occupation of photographer, a rare occupation in those days. Thanks for that.
Thanks again everyone
