I came across this thread in google search. Mary Ann Lambert is my great grandmother and her two marriages are documented in my tree on gru. I have copies of both her marriage certificates - she claims to be a spinster on both !
Certificates can be revealing; the marriage certificate for Walter Robert Haigh and Mary Lambert shows John Crookes as a witness and this info helped me to find Walter in the 1861 census at Chapeltown. Living as Walter Robert Cookes with John and Ann Crookes whose marriage was in 1858 (Dec Sheffield 9c 384).

Now this walter is consistently Walter R/Robert so may be another guy

Divorce wasnt an option in the 1880.s plus . people often just parted and then some remarriad bigmously. You may want to splash out on the marriage cert for his status BUT then if he was being illegal he may not tell the truth about his mariage status anyway.

I cant see mary on any later census of see the other children as yet. He took on James Woodcock when he married so you would think if it was him he they would have his other children with them too .

Thats what i thought Shirley, have looked for a death between 1883 and 1887 but have not been able to find one for Mary who would only have been in her twentys, i know james only lived a couple of years and another GR member has the family in his tree showin Walter married to Jesse but Marys date of death as 1932
