On 23/2/1879, when Frank was age  22, he married Emma EVE, daughter of John Overy EVE & Ann Johnson MOWER at Holy Trinity Church, Hoxton. Although Emma is the name on the marriage certificate, Annie appears on her baptismal record, an event that took place 1/1/1860 at St Mary, Islington. The baptism entry gives a 8/6/1859 birth date. This is consistent with the birth registration - recorded as Annie - quarter ending September 1859, City of London registration district. Emma (Annie) was admitted with her son to the City Road Workhouse 14/4/1881 & discharged 18/4/1881. There is no obvious reference to her in any records after this date so it’s not known what happened to her or when she died.
