Trying to find any info on my great, great grandparents William Wray, and Elizabeth Wray, formerly Bainbridge. My great grandmother Mary Agnes Wray was born in May 1847, at 1 Hanover Square, Prince Edwin Street, Everton. Her birth certificate shows William as being a professor of music, and he appears on her first marriage certificate in 1869, still living, and again on her second marriage in 1876, but is now deceased. No other info and can't find any, I don't even know where he originated from or when he may have been born, when married etc.
