James Hobbins 1848 Coventry

James, son of William and Mary, married Sarah Ann Richards 1869 in Coventry. They had a daughter, Sarah Ann 1870. Rumour in the family has it that she had 2 marriages and 25 children. I am unable to locate any reference to the family and can find nothing in the 1871, 1881 or 1891 censuses.

This family is not to be confused with James' brother Henry who also married a Sarah Ann Richards and had a daughter Sarah Ann all at about the same time but lived in Aston, Birmingham. Thanks to Jim Hobbins for pointing out this remarkable set of coincidences!

Does anyone have any info please?
