William Muson LOCK married in Tiverton?
« on: Sunday 07 June 20 05:48 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find a marriage of William Muson LOCK to Caroline (Webster?) Between 1841 and 1851.

William was born in Somerset and he is in Bedminster in 1841 with 1st wife Sarah (whose marriage I can't find or birth record of daughter Maria). By 1851 he is married to a Caroline and living in Tiverton, Devon.

I am mainly just trying to make sure that the William in these census' is the son of John and Mary LOCK and I'm hoping his marriage records will help.

Thank you for any help that can be given.

The marriage certificate for 1847 will give his fathers name

Looking at the entry on the baptism register, I wonder if his middle name should be Mason?
Is it Edwin Murwood or Marwood in previous  entry?

William was born in Somerset and he is in Bedminster in 1841 with 1st wife Sarah (whose marriage I can't find or birth record of daughter Maria).

Are you sure this couple isn't in Bristol in 1851?  Maria may have died in 1844.

In 1841 and  in 1851 William's occupation is shown as "baker". He is a "corn merchant" in 1861
