Note on Marriage 1

This is probably Emily from 1864 and not the one from 1880. Emily would be about 20 which is a good age. There are no other marriage records around this time. Two men are listed on the same page, William James Fowler and Frederick Hawkins.

Note on Marriage 2

Registered Apr-Jun 1884, St Albans, Hertfordshire, Vol 3a/Page 605

 

This is probably Emily from 1864 and not the one from 1880. Emily would be about 20 which is a good age. There are no other marriage records around this time. Two men are listed on the same page, William James Fowler and Frederick Hawkins.

Note on Husband: William James FOWLER

Birthplace is probably Toddington, Bedfordshire. Debbie Ryan has place as Fiddington, Bedfordshire. However a google map search results in Google offering Toddington as a replacement as Fiddington doesn't exist (except in Somerset). An 1881 census entry has a William J Fowler with father named James (as in the parish marriage entry) living in Harpenden, with William J Fowler's birth place as Toddington. [Jon Axtell]

Note on Wife: Emily AXTELL

BIRTH: Registered in Jul-Sep 1864. Vol 3a/Page 285

 

NOTES: No record of Emily Axtell in 1891 census so has either died or emigrated or married

 

DEATH: Not confirmed.

 

DEATH: Registered in Jan-Mar 1890 in Eton, Buckinghamshire. Vol 3a/Page 447.

 

DEATH: Has age as 28 (birth approx 1862). This is close to the birth date of 1864 in the birth index and the 1881 census.

 

DEATH: However marriage records show an Emily Axtell marrying either William James Fowler or Ferderick Hawkins. 1891 census shows a William J Fowler and an Emily together with a Horace E as their son.

 

DEATH: An Emily Fowler born in 1864 is shown as dying in 1909 which would be after Horace's birth. However it's in Chorlton, Lancashire. Not unknown, not impossible, but nothing is known about her movements to know if she could have moved north.
