(Martha, coming at the end, may be 3 months!)
That will put George's marriage back to about 1833, before civil
registration began. I can't see it in the IGI. See...
..and ask Elizabeth HOWARD(!!!!!) for help.

Subject: [DEV] Howard
You very kindly helped me some time ago with Isabella Leach who
out to have been born in Jersey and also with Selina
Howard, my grandmother who married JOHN ATKINS ELLIOTT.
I would like to trace her family back a couple of generations. I
have tried but
have not met with much success.
SELINA'S father was WILLIAM H HOWARD born about 1842 (1882
He married ELLEN but I have not found her maiden name to trace her
back. In the 1861 Census I have found WILLIAM HOWARD aged 20 with
birth abt 1841 who would it seems be the same person both being born
in Barnstaple. His father was GEORGE HOWARD and he himself named his
GEORGE HOWARD married LOUISA ? (abt 1840) and they had 6 children
WILLIAM HOWARD who married ELLEN ? (abt 1862) had 5 children,
GEORGE being the
eldest and SELINA the second.
It would seem these are the same family but I'm not certain. So far
the only ones that fit together.
I would like to find the Maiden names of LOUISA and ELLEN and
possibly go back one
more generation, but don't know how hard that
would be. Also to trace SELINA'S siblings and who they married.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated.
