Looking at the ages, William James obviously married twice; Harriet could not be the mother of Annie.

i cant seem to find a birth for annie to find out her mothers name and as her father travelled alot certainly cant find a marriage for him until 1857 in bradford to harriett which i assume is his secord wife.
