There's a special section on RootsChat for traveller ancestors which includes show-people. You might find links to resources for background information.

I've not been able to find Alfred's birth registration or baptism. That's how this whole thing started!

By the way, this is the man you're looking for, taken in 1871 with his second wife Frances Hannah Smith.

Again, super sleuthing Ladyhawk.   :)

I wondered if it was a second marriage for Thomas, although we canít find it anyway, but with the gap between Alfred and Eliza it looks that it could be a new relationship.
