Thank you for the quick replies.   I have only recently decided to try and do all this searching, and I am surprised at how addictive it has become !   

I've not found a definite marriage date for William and Mary.  I dont know Mary's maiden name either.  I've been mainly trying to find out about HENRIETTA,  my Great Grandmother.  I just haven't been able to find any birth or death records.

My Grandma, Emily,  died when I was 2, and my Mum used to say Emily was brought up by an Aunt - I suppose this could have been Henrietta's sister, Hannah, but I don't know.   I know a lot about her after she married my Grandad in 1894 though. Goodness me, my head's buzzing !!  Thanks again.

I'm really grateful for all these replies, I wasn't expecting it.   Because I'm a novice at this,  I'm still trying to get my head around all these Ronsons  - and their various spellings, which makes it more complicated to research!   I'm not sure where a Sarah comes into it.   My best course of action for tonight is to escape from under these piles of papers and properly digest all this new information.  Oh my goodness,  I'll never be short of something to do now !!
There's more messages coming in ...so thanks for now.   I'll no doubt be back !!!

The plot certainly thickens - so many more leads now.  I was intending to log off 2 hours ago but I haven't stopped scribbling dates down and trying to work out where some of these people fit it.  Very confused on the most recent post ie. Henrietta marries Hodgson and then another census shows Hannah not Henrietta !  Confusing because Henrietta's sister is Hannah !   Gee whizz.  I have to log off - this is only my first evening of ancestor searching and I'm worn out !!   Thanks everyone.

No luck locating a Hodgson/Ronson marriage ?

This looks to be the death entry for Henrietta Hodgson

Mar 1910
HODGSON   Henrietta   age 54   Carlisle   10b   342
