    • When William and Mary Jane are married, both are living at Cricket Street, Milton.

      On his certificate, William states that his father is John Sherwood and his mother was Martha unk (unknown). I cannot find any record for a marriage of John Sherwood to Martha nor a birth for William to a John and Martha. It is possible that William had forgotten his mother's name as he was only about 6 or 7 when she died.
