    • GRO ref: POWELL, William to Glassby, Margaret q4 1869 Sheppey RD 2a 1235
      While the marriage registration index shows Margaret as a GLASSBY, her maiden name is shown as CLASPER in the birth registrations of all of her children. 

      Had Margaret been previously married to a Glassby? - I can find no such marriage, perhaps it was a mishearing of Clasper, especially if said in a Mackem accent.

    • From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 28 Nov 2016)
      Shows William Powell, aged 25, Bachelor, Labourer, residence at time of marriage: 38 Cyprus Road, father: William Powell, a Labourer married
      Mary Goatham, aged 23, Spinster, [no occupation given], residence at time of marriage: 23 Orchard Place, father: William Goatham, Mariner.
      Married by Banns, both signed, as did witnesses, John Henry Powell and Elizabeth Emma Powell.

      Mary's grandfather was William Goatham but he was not a Mariner; I suspect she was thinking of her step-father William Pysing, but omitting to mention he was her step-father, not her father, and so that he had a different surname.
