Note: This marriage registration raises some problems.

This marriage registration raises some problems.

  • John Browning gives his age as 39. To be consistent with earlier Census records, he would be closer to 53.
  • Lists his father as John Browning - Carpenter. Earlier marriage lists Thomas Browning as father.

This record does link John with Elizabeth. The 1891 census seems to bring this all together.
