Re: Marriage of Sarah Shortridge, unclear witness name, suggestion
Thank you both for your opinions. Obviously not easily resolved. Mary Ann seems possible, I think it was more usual then for the younger generation to be witnesses. Sarah Martha Shortridge was Sarah's sister in law; but they are not my family, I had been looking at the businesses.
George William King was a civil engineer who took his wife to Canada, where he died. At the 1861 census Sarah was a widow living in Albert Road, Heeley with two children born in "America New Brunswick".
