I cant find the marriage of William and Emily.

The only birth reg I can find for a Valentine Blewitt is

Name: Valentine Blewitt
Mother's Maiden Name: Blewitt
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1914
Registration district: Dover
Inferred County: Kent
Volume: 2a
Page: 2106

which is unlikely given the 38 age difference, unless Valentine was her son and not her brother, stranger things...................
