Did they or Didn’t they? – George SOLE & Eliza BARKER continued

Following on from my earlier post George SOLE has now been found in the 1871 census living in Badingham in Suffolk with Eliza BARKER and two children George BARKER aged 7 and Sarah BARKER aged 3. The record has been transcribed as SOLL, but on looking at the original it reads as SOLE.

George’s occupation is shown as a Great Eastern Railway Porter.

Ten years later in 1881 George SOLE is living in Bradford with Eliza SOLE his wife (although I can find no marriage record to verify this) with children George SOLE aged 17 a Shop Porter and Sarah SOLE aged 13 a scholar – George’s occupation is shown as a Railway Checker.

Well this answers my Did they or Didn’t they? question, because even if they had not married on 25th December 1865 they were still together 16 years later with two children.
