    • 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.

    • From marriage registration
      (There is one anomaly - Grace's mother is shown as Mary Heath rather than Mary Goatham. William Powell is named as her father, and everything else fits. Given that Grace was adopted I wonder if a Mary Heath was her birth mother? Looking at the birth registrations for Grace Heath, 1896-8, there is no obvious likely candidate)
