Hi, Mark.
My great grandfather was John Thomas Marrows (b. circa 1833 Skirbeck, Lincs)who married Ellen Daft (b. 1838 Moorby) from Haltham on Bain/Moorby, Lincolnshire. John was variously listed as John or Thomas or John Thomas which has been rather confusing. The Dafts were quite well off, I think, owning land around Haltham, Wildmore Fen, Moorby and New York.I think Ellen was supposed to have married 'beneath her' as J.T. was a mere raiway porter. Oddly, her sister, Betsy, did the same, marrying Mowbray Smaller.
Ellen died in about 1887 and J.T. remarried, a Jane Towl (Towell?)who had a glass eye! They died within days of each other in 1925, both in their nineties.
Hope this is of interest.
