    Charles Parfict married Mary Nash at Croydon Parish Church, Surrey, on 18 October 1846 (Ancestry Surrey marriages). Mary was a minor and I believe she was born in Croydon.

    Charles appears to have married again on 11 August 1861 at Carshalton Parish Church, Surrey. His wife was Susan Hersey (Ancestry Sutton, Surrey marriages).

    Can anyone find Charles and Mary on the 1851 census please? (N.B. I can't find Mary's death on the GRO Index site).

    I have a Charles in Farnborough in 1851, he is a widower, born in Headingly. Any good? Lots of kidlings which makes me think he isn't yours.

    Ah but you've been digging around behind the scenes which has led me to finding Mary's burial (as Mary Parfitt) in Carshalton in December 1860, aged 35. Thank you Blackmogs.

    Everything's solved (for the moment) :).

    Thanks MollyMay. The name Parfict is such an 'awkward' one that I wonder if family members just gave up and started calling themselves Parfitt or other variations of the name. Certainly FreeBMD has hardly any Parfict surnames in their database.

    I've tried the papers, but all the 'hits' for Parfict turn out to be actually Parfitt of Perfect :sceptical:

    I wonder if they never really sounded the 'c', meaning it sounded like Parfit - it is not a name I have ever come across before.

    Maybe, although there were pockets of Parfict's in Cambridgeshire, Wiltshire as well as Surrey and so it does seem as though it's not just an isolated spelling.
