If he was indeed married twice, to two Elizabeths, then this might possibly be the death of the first one:

Hi Mel
Thanks again for your info.......i assumed Elizabeth Walker was Edwards second wife whom he married in 1844...7 years after his first Elizabeth!! although the 2 baptisms you have given me would have been when he was married to second wife..but first wife is named as mother??!!! I had done some checking of my own and had found the second marriage in 1844..it all added up to being correct.
Best Regards
Mavis

Most of the places of birth for Edward had Bermondsey Surrey it was only one that had Southwark which would be the same area anyway.

I would still like to know why you think the marriage in 1844 is the one. That could have been a second marriage but you will only find out by buying some birth certs for the children born before 1844 and the ones or one born before 1844 to the marriage in 1837.

If thats them that Maddie put up then this could be their wedding.

How do you know they married in 1844 please?

They round up their ages on the 1841 census so what Maddie put up is probably them.

A birth certificate of one of the children will have the mother's maiden name to tell you if it was Smith or Walker.

Hi, Mavis -

If the marriage was 1844, then it was Elizabeth Walker he married. (Not that that helps to find his birthplace!)

I don't see a birth of an Edward Dennis, with father Edward Dennis, at the right time, in either Bermondsey or Southwark.
