Or was Sarah a long-time mistress? Do you have a marriage for her and
John? I don't see one in the LMA marriages at Ancestry.
BTW, in case you haven't already spotted them, the 1841 census does
have two John BOVEY tailors, one in St. Stephen Coleman Street in the
City with wife Susan Mary and children aged 4, 3, and 4m, and one in
Tebbs Place, Lambeth, with wife Sarah and children aged 10 and 6.
Both Johns are aged 30 and born outside the county, so they could
still be the same man.
