      Twelve years before Bertha was born her mother's younger sister, Emily, gave a daughter the name 'Bathea'; I wonder if that was the name Maria intended for Bertha?

    • GRO ref: Goatham, Maria to Welch, George q4 1861 St George S. RD 1d 144

      Both George and Maria were described as of 4 Anns Place, Lant Street, Borough at the time of their getting married. They were bachelor and spinster, marr by banns, both were "of full age" and signed; the witnesses were Henry and Sarah Russell who also signed.
      (I have copy of PR entry)

      In the 1861 census Maria and her baby son were living with other households in (?London Sq, Harrhead), Sevenoaks. In the same house was 29 yr old James Welch & family - relatives of George? Could be how Maria and George met.
