Emily HOLLOWAY and William Henry WHITE married Bere Regis 1854
« on: Thursday 14 January 21 09:58 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to find out what became of this couple who married 21 Sep 1854 Bere-Regis

Emily, baptised Feb 1835 Milborne St Andrew, was the daughter of Frederick and Martha Holloway
William Henry was the son of Robert and described as of full age.

The only Ancestry tree which gives a year of death for Emily ignores her marriage

Have you collated GRO birth entries for the surname combination?

I have found Emily's baptism on 21 Feb 1836 not 1835. The top of the page in register says 1835, but it goes from Oct 1835 at top to Emily's at  bottom on 21 feb 1836. There is a baptism of an Ann Jane to same parents on 8 Feb 1836. In 1851 Emily's age is given as 17, so birth year 1833 /34. Ann Jane is 15 on this census. So looks like when parents had Ann Jane baptised they remembered later that Emily had not been baptised. On marriage cert it says she was of full age, which would match with birth year of 1833, unless she was telling a little fib.
Have you got William Henry's year and place of birth?

Possible in Affpuddle in 1841 age 13, assumed parents Robert and Ann

The tree is wrong - the Emily who died 1862 Bridport was only 8 years old.

Quote from Wikepedia about Ascension Island

"In 1843, botanist and explorer Joseph Hooker visited the island. Four years later, Hooker, with much encouragement from Darwin, advised the Royal Navy that with the help of Kew Gardens, they should institute a long-term plan of shipping trees to Ascension. The planted trees would capture more rain and improve the soil, allowing the barren island to become a garden. So, from 1850 and continuing year on year, ships came with an assortment of plants from botanical gardens in Argentina, Europe and South Africa. By the late 1870s Norfolk pines, eucalyptus, bamboo, and banana trees grew in profusion at the highest point of the island, Green Mountain, creating a tropical cloud forest"

Makes sense - who better than an Ag lab from Dorset to look after the banana trees  ;D

Thanks to those who've answered the 1851 census entry tends to confirm that this is not the William Henry who was my GGF's brother, born Wyke Regis 1829 son of Robert and Mary.  His father was a mariner and then a coastguard who moved from Dorset to Mylor in Cornwall between 1837 and 1841 and then to East Stonehouse. This William Henry was in Cornwall in 1841 but I've not managed to clearly find him thereafter although I have seen the Ascension Island claim.

That is more plausible given his father and 2 brothers were all coastguards
