I've found the banns for her marriage on ancestry - 4th, 11th and 18th August 1844 at St George the Martyr. Then they married on the 25th August 1844 - her surname is spelt Enock on the actual marriage entry. Her age is given as 21, father Humphrey Enock, weaver. Her residence is given as John Street, and the witnesses were Robert Saunders and Elizabeth Saunders. In case you don't have Samuel's details, he was 22, a painter, also lived at John Street, father Thomas Loveday Fairbrass, painter.

There's a Humphrey Enoch, silk weaver in Abingdon, Berks in 1841 & 1851.

Death?


Deaths Mar 1864

Did Samuel die in 1849 and Eliza remarry in 1850?

Yes that's what seems to have happened.

Eliza remarried to William Maunder in 1850 and is with him in 1851, only her name is transcribed 'Elira'. The census has her birthplace as Abingdon, Berks which makes it seem highly likely that Humphrey Enoch b 1803 is her father.

EDIT: See post #11 re what I've said here, below:

Only hitch is, she doesn't have any children with her from the first marriage in 1851, but she would need at least one wouldn't she?

Hmmm......maybe I've gone wrong somewhere as in 1861 they have moved to Abingdon and still there are no children. Also, both William Maunder and Eliza are getting progressively younger! (1844 she was 21, 1851 she was 25 and 1861 she was 30!)

I looked last night at deaths but nothing conclusive because of the lack of age on the index.

I also checked the NBI, nothing at all.


Couldn't find then on a census but of course the 1851 is still playing up I think.
