I'm starting a new thread because although this is linked to my "Roberts or Brooke?" thread, it's really a whole new family. I've been sucked in... Charlotte Marriott Rance was born 1822 at St Luke, London to Thomas Francis Rance and Ann Eldridge. She is with them at St Luke in 1841 In 1844 she married Henry James, in Broadwater by Worthing, Sussex for some reason His father was John James In 1851 she was with her sister Mary at uncle William Brooke Robert's house in Maidstone. She was married, but he was not there. Both sisters were annuitants. I cannot find a definite sighting of her after this. Henry was, I think, in St Luke, London born 1817 St Luke Old Street, a GP. He is with his father John 66, mother Hester 59, and siblings. in 1861 and 1871 he is in Weybridge, Surrey, with family, a surgeon, married but no wife. In 1880 if I'm right he marries Katherine M MacDonald in Ramsgate, but its only under select marriages so I don't know if he was a widower. They are living in Ramsgate in 1881 and Brighton in 1891. So my question is: is this all the same person, and what happened to Charlotte?
