I know this information is correct, Robert was a cabinet maker in census and on marriage certificates. I'm really keen on going backwards with the Elliker's, but hitting a brick wall, any help appreciated x

Yes I've spotted this but it doesn't give much away. I assumed rightly or wrongly that with her father David been named on the marriage that he was still alive in 1844 as I thought they put deceased instead if they are dead. But this been the case I cannot find a David Elliker in 1841anywhere

No, the status of a father was not always recorded correctly, he could well have been dead at the time of her marriage
