I've never come across this surname before and suddenly I'm swamped with them!

1) John & Sarah Flux

The following marriage appears in the GRO indexes:

Dec 1846 John FLUX & Sarah SERMON Witney 16 275

In the 1851 census we find:

Mary Ann SERMAN D-in-law 10 Scholar Stow in the ...,Gloucestershire
James FLUX Brother W 33 Agriculture Lab Langford,Oxfordshire
Thomas FLUX S 9 Eaton Hastings,Berkshire
Lucy FLUX Sister 11 Scholar Langford,Oxfordshire

(Mary Ann is John's step-daughter Thomas and Lucy are James's children)

HO107/1970 F302p9 Behind Noon, Stow on the Wold, Gloucestershire
Sarah SARMEN H W 61 Millers Widow Iccomb,Gloucestershire
Sarah FOX D M 30 Grooms Wife on a Visit Longborough,Gloucestershire

(Fox is a mistake here for Flux. Sarah is visiting her mother)

Sarah FLUX W M 38 Maiden Hill Farm,Gloster
Jemima FLUX Niece 11 Langford,Oxon

Would appreciate details of the marriage, etc

2) Thomas & Emily Serman

From the IGI:

6 Oct 1857 Thomas SERMON & Emily FLUX; St Leonards,Shoreditch,London

which appears in GRO indexes as:

Dec 1857 Seemon Thomas & Flun Emily Shoreditch 1c 448

Again details of the marriage would be appreciated.

Were Thomas and Sarah related? John and Emily were siblings.
