So it looks as if Edward Jones was indeed the husband of A louisa Potter, who is the right age to be yours.

Thanks All. I got confused at first too, as I thought mum would have been 14/15. Then I noticed that Elizabeth was Robert's and Priscilla's daughter, Priscilla then died and Robert got with Ann. Then they had several children. Is anyone able to find anything about Louisa? How could there not be a marriage record? I know when paper gets transcribed there can be errors due to illegible writing, but I have also searched on the alleged husband, searching on a very lose filter.

Thanks

Thanks for the offer btw, but I do have a sub to FMP along with ancestry

Would it be safe then to assume that Louisa did indeed marry Edward. I did check GRO and found that some of the children had Potter as the maiden name.

Thanks
