Hi

I am looking for the marriage record for a William Campbell Smith who
Married a Elizabeth Fitzgerald between 1904 and 1911 I think

Born 1877 haggerston Middlesex to Joseph Campbell Smith Stone mason
Mother Emma Smith
Baptised 1877
All the family in the 1881 census joseph w c smith and Emma and William c smith
William Campbell Smith is not in the 1891 census (can’t find him)
Father and mother are as joseph smith and Emma smith
W C smith not in the 1901 census

Have found his World War 1 records for when he signed up again to the army
He says that previous he had served 16 years 8 with the colours
And 8 in reserve, and his regiment was the 57th battery royal field artillery
He claims that he is married to an Elizabeth but this is not his wife
But an Elizabeth Priscilla horseman who he is living with and who he married in 1942!!
Where he states that he is a widower and she is a spinster
He died in 1958 in Greenwich hospital living in an arms house
He left some money £64.00 to an Eileen Emma murphy, will
Come back to her.
He had three children with Elizabeth Priscilla horseman between 1914 and 1919
All claiming that he was married to Elizabeth horseman, but they are not married
On the first birth in 1914 he states that he is a postman.
By chance I found him in the 1911 census visiting in Brighton occupation postman
With an Elizabeth as his wife w c smith and e smith
Two others with him EILEEN EMMA SMITH and Eugene Patrick waters
On Eileen birth cert states that father is William Campbell smith a postman
And mother is Elizabeth smith formally Fitzgerald
On Eugene it states that father is Owen waters and mother is waters
formally Fitzgerald. Owen was with the 57th battery royal field artillery
Owen died in 1902 in India with his wife present at death

She then married a Richard henry Lucas 57th battery royal field artillery in 1904 in
India
He then died in India in 1904 wife present at death you guessed it Elizabeth waters
Formally Fitzgerald
I can’t find her marriage to w c smith in India or UK which has to be 1904 onwards

Any ideas????

I have most of the certificates except this one to confirm marriage

robert
ps its not the william campbell smith married in bath in 1910
