      See extract from Parish Register of St Philip the Evangelist, Islington:

      "Marriage solemnised at St Philip the Evangelist in the Parish of Islington in the County of Middlesex:

      August 12th 1869:

      William Watkin Gosnell, Full age - Bachelor - Warehouseman - 39 Morton Road - Father: Henry George Gosnell, Clerk


      Margaret Ann Woods, Full age - Spinster - 39 Morton Road - Father: William Barnett Woods, Accountant.

      After Banns:

      Both Signed. Witnesses: Henry Geo. Gosnell and Elizabeth M J(?) Marsh".

      Family known from 1881 Census CD-Rom at 39 Morton Road, Islington.

      According to Linda, Ernest Augustus married a "cousin". His wife Amy Mary would be his cousin, IF William Gosnell had married one of the Marsh children, a sister of Isabella Penelope Marsh - the younger one ???? Isabella P was born in Newport, Shropshire, as was Mary A Unknown, so this is a distinct possibility.

      No - looking back on the IGI, William's grandfather married a Maria Marsh, which is probably the connection. Linda did say she thought it was a "distant cousin".
