I was trying to tidy up the tree, using the GRO Birth Index looking for the maiden names of wives where I hadn't been able to find a marriage (or had forgotten to look for it ... distractions are everywhere) Looking for the second wife of Adam John Cater [1830 Grantham-1894 Leicester], discovered she was Martha Cater, they never married. Struggling to identify her, I only have her in the 1881 census in Leicester, which says she was born Stratford, Essex in 1855. The best I can come up with is Louisa Martha Cheater, born West Ham Mar 1857. Adam John Cater, musical instrument maker, had one family in Mile End/Bethnal Green, with Sophia Main: Adam William 1850-1851 Harriet Sophia 1853-1906 Adam John 1855-1907 George Henry 1857-1919 He then turns up in Leicester, with Martha, a much younger new 'wife' (though old wife is alive and well) and semi-repeats his naming patterns; Adam 1873- Ada Jane 1875- George Henry 1876- Mary Ann Eliza 1879- Edward 1885- Albert 1887- (still working on the second family; the first family are proving difficult to find in censuses; why am I working on such difficult people ) Questions for now: 1. Louisa Martha Cheater, is she Martha Cater, what happens to her after 1881? 2. Did Adam (1873) die in the Boer War; he was a young infantryman in 1891, married Lizzie Cartwright in 1894, had two children Maud (1895-1895) and Adam (1895-1968). Lizzie remarried (as Elizabeth) in 1902, I can't find a death for Adam in the UK.
