Note on Marriage

Spelt Druiett in the GRO marriage index. In 1861 she's a cook in a house in Faringdon,Berks. Looks like she may have died in Exeter in 1887 - she doesn't appear in censuses after that.And there are no other obvious Julia Wright candidates in Devon

Note on Husband: William Edwards WRIGHT

In 1871 living with sister and brother-in-law at Gaters, Sandford. No reference to his condition, but by 1881 he is paralysed.
