Albert Edwin Tomlinson was the husband of Mary Julia Thomas .
Who were they ?
After having an holiday it is good to start the blog again and try to solve a puzzle.
So here we go.
George Heath Vlieland married after the death of his first wife a second time.
This wife was Mary Holman widow of Edward Thomas.
The marriage between Mary and Edward was 17th November 1838 but by then this couple already had 4 children .
So what was the reason .
We looked for a previous marriage for Mary or Edward but did not find one.
The children were there after she married George .
One of the children of the marriage of Edward and Mary is Mary Julia Thomas married to Albert Edwin Tomlinson.
So there we have Albert Edwin Tomlinson.
His wife Mary Julia nee Thomas was the executor after the death of her mother Mary Flieland (as she is called by then.)
In the census of 1871 we find

But even after a Sunday looking at all their births, deaths and marriages and the newspaper ,
we still do not know why they first had the children and then married.
