Christiana Julia Carrick - Canterbury Kent


I am trying to trace the married name of Christiana. She was born in Canterbury in 1850 to Charles Carrick and Christiana Slann. She married in the 4th quarter of 1872 also in Canterbury but I have been unable to find her married name.

I hope that someone can help!

Many thanks

Dorothea Jones

I'm trying to find a Dorothea Jones in my somewhat extended family! She lived in St Thomas Road, Preston in about 1950, and worked at Seimens (I think in the progress department?) She would have been born about 1930/31. I can't find her marriage anywhere, so I don't know whether she is still alive or if indeed she had any children. Any help much appreciated!
