Unable to find a marriage for a George Wright to a Susannah Louisa Watts.

Did find a marriage in 1859 Lambeth, for a Susannah Watts to a William Bishop.

Coincidence or what?

George jr birth was reg'd in Lewisham 1866 & Percival in Greenwich 1867

The owner of this tree on Ancestry believes that the family went under the name of Bishop in the censuses: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/person/tree/120878944/person/122122051573/facts

Do you know -- I was looking for the marriage and found the Bishop one - and also the tree on Ancestry.

We don't know the census year Alison mentioned, where the Wright family were found. Or were they? Was it just George who was found?

Oh well found Kloumann -- I was too bone idle to search! But I wouldn't have found that - I was looking for a George Wright.

There is a death in Woolwich 1873 of a George Wright. Possible?

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2VS7-WZK

A Percival William Wright, age 0, died Shoreditch, 1868. Could be the other son?
