Last year I posted a request for information re MARTHA BRINDLEY. Several helpful responses were posted but I was unable to make progress till lately. This is my update:


The address recorded for both of them was 7, Colchester Terrace.

They were married at St Mary's Parish Church(district chapel) West Brompton, London, Middlesex, by Nathanial Liberty asst. curate.

witnesses: John Rose and Honnor Hutton(or Sutton)

WILLIAM was 25 years old, bachelor, Bricklayer.(born 1837)
MARTHA ANN was 23 years old, Spinster.(born 1839)

WILLIAM LEACH'S father was STEPHEN LEACH, also Bricklayer.

MARTHA'S father was JOHN BRINDLEY, Soldier.

This couple died young. It is believed that MARTHA died in 1875 age 36 in Fulham, and WILLIAM died age 41, in 1878, Fulham.

They had three daughters(possibly other children)One called MILLIE or MINNIE, one called MARY and one called ANNIE. It is believed that these children went into an orphanage of some kind and were 'Home Children' sent to live in Canada.

Does anyone connect to JOHN BRINDLEY, soldier?. Unknown where he was born but he was descended from a brother of James Brindley, engineer.

If anyone has access to the 1871 census and can look up these names, WILLIAM LEACH, and wife, MARTHA ANN,, I would really appreciate it, or look for their parents, JOHN BRINDLEY and STEPHEN LEACH on the 1861. I am hoping to get a Fulham address on their death certificates which might help.
thanks Jean
