Wow, that's fantastic. I've found so much more out today.
It's 1am and I need to go to bed but have been adding relatives for ages.
Many, many thanks for looking up all that. Fascinating that Sybil Pritchard and John Bloomernever married despite the banns being called. So much to mull over now. :-)

Banns were read on 1oth, 17th and 24th September 1882 for Sybilla Pritchard and John Bloomer but I can't find a marriage...yet.

That's added quite a bit to what I knew- thanks.
It seems that my Sybil Pritchard had 3 illegitimate children before she married. The only thing I can find about the father of these children is that his name was Bloomer. But now that I know the Pritchard came from her side of the family I don't know what his surname was. He was a musician and I don't know if that would have been a respectable trade in those days. It depends I suppose!

Anyone who comes across anyone called Bloomer in London in the late 1800s??????
