Christopher.....I would suggest that you get together all the info.relating to Elsie Rosetta/Annie and Albert South and the Haly family prior to you starting a search otherwise you may find time is not on your side when you go visiting the Archives..

A further hunt around has come up with what may be a possible marriage for Thomas and Ann....Bear in mind the surname spelling for Thomas varies.

Name: Thomas Healey
Spouse's Name: Ann Harding
Event Date: 21 Feb 1867
Event Place: Saint Thomas,Portsmouth,Hampshire,England

This may well be Ann 1871 Census you are lucky if it proves to be her as her mother is listed with her and you would now have a "maiden" name for Ann.

Event Type: Census
Event Date: 1871
Gender: Female
Age: 60
Relationship to Head of Household: Mother
Birthplace: Fareham, Hampshire
Schedule Type: Household
Registration District: Portsea Island
Sub-District: Landport
Parish: Portsea
County: Hampshire
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Self Ann Healey F 25 Portsmouth, Hampshire
**Son Thomas Healey M 3 Portsmouth, Hampshire **
Son Charles Healey M 1 Portsmouth, Hampshire
Mother Charlotte Harding F 60 Fareham, Hampshire

There is death reg for a Charlotte Harding aged 67 March Quarter 1877 Reg Portsea 2b 299.

The Thomas Healey son aged 3 yrs b Portsmouth may be the following....

Name: T J Healey
Age (Original): 13
Gender: Male
Birth Year: 1868
Birthplace: Portsmouth, Hampshire, England
Relationship to Head of Household: Scholar
Marital Status: Single
Address:** Greenwich Hospital School ***
Event Place: Greenwich, Kent, England
GS Film number: 1341169
Affiliate Publication Number: RG11
Piece/Folio: 727 / 107
Page Number: 31

GHS...Naval College.

They have a web site.

The above is all just a possibilty of course and would need to be confirmed with BMD Certs.

As a matter of interest the St.where Thomas and Ann lived 1901 (Steel Street Southsea) is still there....perhaps you may get a chance to go see it when you are in Portsmouth...
