Harry, bachelor, Commercial Clerk; Elizabeth, widow. Her father's name appeared at first to be 'John Crosby (dec.)' but this is probably 'John Crosley (dec.)'. His occupation had been 'Commercial Traveller'.

The marriage of Harry and Elizabeth is witnessed by 'Jas. Samuel Roberts' and 'Ada Anniss' who also got married that day, witnessed by Harry Anniss and Elizabeth Hannah Terry! It seems reasonable to assume that this was a brother and sister sharing a wedding day.

The marriage certificate of Harry and Elizabeth has them both 'of full age'. He is a 'bachelor' and a 'Commercial clerk'. She is a widow. They already appear to have the same address (2, Charles Street, Marylebone) and rumour has it that she had been his landlady.

Harry's father is shown as Silas R. Anniss, profession: 'Inspector of Police'.

In the 1851 census at 23, Bishopsgate Street, Saint Botolph without Bishopsgate, London.
