Default Where did they vanish to?

BK6 updated from this thread

Sorry, this is OH's family, so they are being particularly tricky!

Matilda Mary COTTON (b 27th Sept 1847 Spitalfields) married Thomas HAWSE or HOWSE on 27th Jan 1868 at St Thomas Stepney (LMA image on Ancestry). 'Full age' was given for both parties, though Matilda was actually only 20½! Thomas was an engraver.

Before this, Matilda lived with her parents in Spitalfields until at least the 1861census.

I've not been able to find Matilda after the marriage, or Thomas before or after the marriage. On the wedding cert his father is given as James HOWSE, Police Pensioner.

Can anyone see them anywhere?

It was scaring me how often I had to change it (every three months seemed like every two weeks!) and then I saw a post of mine on GR from about five years ago and that made it worse, because I was a lot younger then!

Anyway, had I put up my 20¾ years, I would have to change it again next week! lol

PS Can you see Matilda?
