GRO Reference: 1856  M Quarter in SAINT GEORGE IN THE EAST  Volume 01C  Page 441

Cannot find any birth for Mary or marriage for Philip and Mary.

I did wonder if that was the case Rosie.

By the way, not keen on the new system FindMyPast have for viewing images.  Nothing wrong with the previous system.

Police looking for him in 1905, with description: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/148496153

He'd already been in jail at least twice in Australia.

A Philip Lawton Bridges was made bankrupt in New Zealand in 1885.
