Yes  I think it is just a variation of her surname. Did you see that you can access the image of the marriage on FamilySearch? Just click the camera and you can download to keep. When you get a list of names on a census transcription, you should be able to click on each name to bring them to the top of the display.

If they married in 1957,
The family would appear on the 1851 census

I have found the 1871 Census Record for Bull Close Road, St Paul’s Parish, Norwich.

I can’t seem to locate the 1861 census for them.

So you have a location for 1861?

“Lavinia Alexandra 1863 Farnham, Surrey, baptised Aldershot
1864 Rosetta and Lavinia buried two days apart in Aldershot”

Check out this record I found on the Ancestry mobile app https://www.ancestry.co.uk/sharing/23416949?h=193cb2


Could Rosetta have died in Jan 1949 at Norwich?

Sadly no. Because George was in the Army when Lavinia was born, her baptism is listed in
British Armed Forces And Overseas Birth & Baptisms
Lavinia Alexandra Smith
29th March 1863
Aldershot
George & Caroline
Sergt A Battery 4th Bryade Rl Artillery
Residence Permanent Barracks
From
British Armed Forces And Overseas Deaths & Burials
Lavinia A Smith
1Y 5M
Burial date 31st August 1864
Burial place Aldershot
Residence Permanent Barracks R A
On the image of the burial it says against the entry
buried in 65 with her sister
Each entry has a number against it for number in cemetery and her entry should have been 67 based on next entry being 68. I went back a page to number 65 and found
Rosetta S Smith age 6 buried 29th August 1864, same residence. For some reason it does not come up in a search.

Where did you find

William John David 1866 Stoke Damerel, baptised Devonport

He wasn’t on the 1871 census.
