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.
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".
