Elijah and Sarah say they are married on the census, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are.

Thank you all for your help which has filled in some gaps.

The death registration of Elijah Whittock in 1889 shows his age as 52 years. That puts his year of birth as c1837. It is possible he married someone before Sarah and they parted company, or something else happened to his wife. I did find a marriage for an Elijah Francis Whidtick in the June quarter 1855 in Shepton Mallet. This Elijah married either Elizabeth Ashman, or Elizabeth Ruddock.

The name variants may be part of the problem here.

After I wrote the above I found an earlier post on this person:
