Hello everyone.

I am trying to find the following couple in 1851 (they married 1850). I just can't see them

Please note there are a Thomas and Mary Bean 1851 who look similar, but I have found them 1861 so they can be discounted I think.

Any suggestions gratefully received! Thank you.

Jan

are you sure it is not Mary & thomas Bean in 1851. There are 2 one Mary and one Mary Ann and I don't think I can find The Mary and THomas in 1861 only Mary Ann

Flip. I think you are right with Frances, thanks.

Ann, that's a very good point. If they are recorded as Bean, the couple below is more likely I suppose, as no middle name for Mary, and no children. I have no idea who Sarah Rudge might be!

Interestingly, Sarah Grant (lodger) is a needlewoman, so I wonder if that might be a clue- as MarieCeleste points out, Mary was a dressmaker 1861.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Well, it might be a long shot, but you never know Ann! Good find though.
