A marriage in 'Upper Norwood'.
I am searching for any information on a marriage conducted at All Saints Church, the "Parish of Upper Norwood" on October 31st 1885 between Frederick Abbott and Ida Gostenhofer (nee Bradberry). I have a copy of the marriage certificate which states that she was residing in 'Norwood' and he was residing in Littlehampton. A strange thing on the marriage certificate is that "Frederick Sedgwick Abbott his x mark". Now Frederick was an educated man and could definitely write. He was heavily involved in the founding of our town in New Zealand called Waipawa, but once known as "Abbottsford". The couple moved to St Heliers in Jersey where he died in 1901 and she in 1943.

Potter family in Croydon
Searching for more information on the Potter family in Croydon in the nineteenth century. Francis Potter (c.1777 - 1838) and his wife Mary Ann (c.1789 - 1861) had at least 9 children baptised in Croydon between 1808 and 1833. I have not located their marriage, which must have taken place around 1808, but the 1851 census appears to shows Mary's birthplace as Chichester SSX, in 1861 it is given as Croydon. It seems very likely that Francis was a fellmonger (dealing in animal carcasses) in Overton's Yard off Surrey Street - certainly Mary Ann carried on the business there after Francis' death. The couple's known children are William (1808-1843) who married Mary Cronen; Jane (born 1810); John (1813- after 1861) who married Sarah; Mary Anne (1817- after 1838); George (c.1820-1892) a butcher who married Frances Mallery; Francis (1823-1849) a fellmonger who married Mary Nicholson; James (born 1826); Charles (1830-1899) and Henry (born 1833). Charles started out as a butcher and married Caroline Overington in 1852. By Caroline's death in 1875 the couple were living at 14 Lansdowne Road in a sizeable house. Charles remarried to Emily Burton the following year and seems to have become a successful contractor and coal merchant.
