    Notes 
    • William doesn't seem to waste much time between the death of one wife and marrying a new one. To be fair, as a working man with young children and no adult daughters left in the house to look after them, he probably had little choice but to remarry quickly. And in his occupation as a Milkman he must have known all about the widow women on his milk round!

    Married 29 Mar 1880  London, England View who/what we know about this place 
    • Susan Spencer had been married before but couldn't find the previous marriage. She was born Susan Randall and on her marriage certificate to William Starr Fincken, her father's name is Samuel Joseph Randal. On her birth record he is just Joseph. This is only baptism record to be found for her which means she was 55 and not 46 when she married William.
