James NIALL 1827-1903

James NIALL is my gg-grandfather.

He was born 11 October 1827 in Bethnal Green, London, England.

22 September 1850 – married Ann KELLY.

13 November 1871 – married Martha BUSSELL, said he was a widower.

24 July 1878 – married Mary Ann SIMMONS, said he was a widower.

To-date I haven’t found deaths of any wives before James’s death!

Last two wives were both at his funeral!

How many other marriages have I missed?

The oral history passed down through the family includes lots of “stories” that I haven’t been able to find documented evidence for yet – plenty to keep me on my toes and researching in all sorts of places!
