    • GRO ref: Quaife, Charlotte to Wood, George q3 1858 Hollingbourn RD 2a 715Was the marriage this Charlotte, remarrying as a widow? I am fairly confident it was. Not only can I find no death registration of a Charlotte Quaife to fit this Charlotte, or any sign of her as a Quaife in the 1861 census, but the census data adds further evidence. In Bregar in the 1861 census a George and Charlotte Wood can be found living in Primrose Street, George being a baker and Charlotte the age of this Charlotte and with the same birthplace. In 1851 the same George (i.e. a baker George Wood of the same age in Primrose Lane) had been a widower. There were 3 marriages of George Woods in Kent between 1851 and 1861, one with the middle name Alexander (in Canterbury RD), one in Hoo RD. The location makes the Hollingbourne the most likely one for this George, especially given the birthplace of his bridge, as shown in the 1861 census.
      In addition, George and Charlotte had a young servant with them in 1861. Not a Bredgar girl, but born in Sittingbourne, but she was the granddaughter of  this Charlotte's first cousin William Goatham (who was still living in Bredgar) which adds a little more support. 

      Both George and Charlotte were living in Bredgar at the time of the 1951 census so it is surprising that the marriage was in Hollingbourne RD. Possibly Charlotte had gone to live in Hollingbourne RD after being widowed - perhaps she had found employment there.
