This marriage looks interesting, because there's a Reginald John Nixon living in Stapleton in 1851. Just trying to find them in 1861.

Oooh, well done, thanks very much Mary. Looks as if I must have accidentally searched Gloucestershire and Somerset only!! Good job you looked as I probably wouldn't have tried again!

This is Laura's death:

Deaths Mar 1914
Nixon Laura L 80 Chorlton 8c 1196

and she's living in Chorlton in 1911 with her two daughters.

Her birthplace is coming up as Bristol on the free search.

Haven't found them the in 1861, but in 1871, Laura (married) and numerous children are living in Ovenden, near Halifax.
