S'ok folks, I goosed it up in this thread too.

It was amusing to see the name change with each post though - wonder who we would have ended up with in the end  ;D

Nice one tonyrod - it was Charles Waterer, stock jobber, of 66 Burnaby Gardens, Chiswick (1901).

Two daughters: Edith C. (?Campbell) b.c.1896 and Sybil R. (?Rowley) b.c.1898.

Edith senior died 1955 in Surrey.

So she and Willoughby Gwatkin must have been divorced  :(

Yup !  There is a file at The National Archives dated 1896:

"Divorce Court File: 17590. Appellant: Willoughby Garnons Gwatkin. Respondent: Edith Campbell Gwatkin. Co-respondent: Charles Waterer. Type: Husband's petition for divorce [hd]. "

Amazing ~ not at all what you would have expected !

What an amazing trail of stories! I only wanted to find out what a couple of scribbles in the marriage register stood for!  Thank you so much :D
