Edward Mostyn THELWELL born 1844

Edward Mostyn THELWELL married Sarah Fenwick nee Hilton in the Sept Q. of 1873 at Ormskirk, Lancashire, England.

Sarah was a widow, late husband Henry a lawyer. She was born in Montego Bay Jamaica in 1829, possibly making her 14 year older than her Thelwell groom....

All I can find about Edward is his birth June Q. 1844 in Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales. Cannot find him on any census between 1851-1901 when Sarah declares herself a widow.

Cannot find a firm death for him between his marriage in 1873-1901.

Cannot find either of them on the 1891 census.

I have found several references in newspapers about an Edward Thelwell being called to the Bar and tutoring youngsters in Kensington but without a middle name I don't know if this is the correct person. Sarah's first husband was also a lawyer so possibly a link there.

Any information about this elusive man would be very welcome
