Ben 1837 has a tree on Ancestry in which he marries again and has 4 sons, It states that Martha was baptised and married as Mary Ann but known as Martha!! There is the Mary Ann marriage to William George Franklin that I found earlier but I can't find a baptism so still no lead to her parents even IF she was Mary Ann

Possible for 1841 as Ann but William was a traveller which is what he was for most of the childrens baptisms. It also in the right area to tie in with baptisms
