Yes,that is the right 1881.
Patchem.. the witnesses were Henry Trevett's parents.
I have this...the original Charlotte was born 1807 according to familysearch,daughter of Sarah and Job..
I have their marriage and all details about Sarah.
Charlotte's brother was Francis Trevett who was Henry Trevett's father..he was married to Mary Ann,nee Carr.
So all the details you found match up.
Perhaps Charlotte was an older mother?Seems unusual for back then.
Thank you for helping

The witnesses to the marriage were Mary Ann Trevett and Francis Trevett.

On the 1841 census there are more Trevetts on the page, but very faint for me to read - should upgrade.
So just wondered if Charlotte returned to maiden name, but age out:

Where did you get Charlotte's age from, as 33 is quite late for a first marriage?
(Just wondered if the Charlotte you had a birth for had died, and another one is this Charlotte)


Jany Report 5 May 2013 16:05

Yes,I think so...1861 has Ellen 18, living with Thomas J 39, Caroline 39 and Ann 19 in Camberwell.
Just realised it can't be the same Thomas as he was born 1822. !!!


brummiejan Report 5 May 2013 16:02

I see what you mean, especially as her father was a shipwright. Do you have her anywhere prior to marriage?


Jany Report 5 May 2013 15:54

Patchem and Brummiejan
Yes, that could be why...Charlotte was just an older sister of an ancestor and I would be interested to find her as another Terry married back into the family much later on(Ellen Terry born 1844 married Henry Trevett born 1839 in 1863) Her father was recorded as Thomas Terry so I thought maybe it was the one who married Charlotte??


brummiejan Report 5 May 2013 15:50

I see Thomas was a mariner = maybe why you can't find him?


Jany Report 5 May 2013 15:48

Actually no. I haven't found them anywhere.
They seem to have married and vanished.


patchem Report 5 May 2013 15:41

Have you found them in 1861, then?
If so, could you post it?

Was he a mariner?
If so, they could be at sea.


Jany Report 5 May 2013 15:27

Would anyone mind looking for this couple in 1841 please?
Charlotte Trevett married Thomas Terry in 1840 St Saviour Southwark.
Charlotte was born in 1807 in Lewisham,I don't know where /when exactly Thomas was born.
I can't see them in 1841, or on the 1851 either
Thank you
