Thanks everyone.
Chris, yours looks the best possibility so far. I don't suppose your CD also has the baptism of Eliza Blackwell born1861? If so, does it give her mother's maiden name?

I wonder if George Black is Ann's father, I can't make out the image. This could be him in 1841 with Wiliam, so possibly his grandson?

Thanks all. It doesn't look as if I will get much further without applying for one of the children's birth certificates.

There are a lot of TABRAMs in Huntingdonshire, suggest you try there.
