And in 1861 his age is down as 32, so still too young:

Thomas William Palmer baptised 17 Jan 1829 Coleshill, son of Thomas and Ann Eleanor.

I wouldn't have thought he would be old enough to describe himself as a solicitor in 1846, but his father's occupation is Attorney on that baptism, so maybe Thomas William was learning the family trade in 1846?

I don't

I wonder whether either of those Thomases had a brother called Frederick who was a sailor?

I do find it strange that Sarah would know a solicitor.

Although my elusive Caroline Hannah Kendall who was a barmaid in the Windmill, 18 Nicholas lane, Lombard street EC3 and then married into a family of notaries, although not vastly wealthy a lot more well off than her and most people. Her husband's grandfather left quite a bit of money in his will but after his grandson died and although all married in wives had a mention and some money there was not one mention of Caroline.

I have looked at baptisms for that couple looks like they only had one other child, a daughter.
