Note on Marriage

The wedding is witnessed by An Bray and William King. An Ann Bray is living in Higher Street Brixham at the time of the 1841 census, a few doors from Louisa's parents, John and Elizabeth Leach. There is reference in the IGI to a wedding between a James Bray and a Mary Cornish - perhaps these families were close.

Note on Wife: Louisa LEACH

In 1861 Louisa and the children are living on Haven Road, St Thomas Exeter
