    Notes 
    • Charles was a bachelor aged 29 and Mary Ann (Marion) a spinster aged 28. We know that Charles was previously married in 1878 so his stating that he was a bachelor is a lie. Both parties were living at 7 Reedworth Street, Lambeth at the time of the marriage. Charles's father was George Broughton, a grocer and Marion's father was James Wright (deceased) a master mariner. Witnesses were George Wilson and Elizabeth Lea.

  • Notes 
    • Mary Ann Wright was born on 16 March 1858 at St Mary Maldon. She is named Marion on her marriage certificate to Charles Broughton. On all the censuses 1861- 1901 it states that she was born in Bermondsey, not Maldon.

      This is "Popsie" who is remembered by Dorothy Wright as living in Westcliff in the 1920s and who had a daughter Natalie who married an Asian doctor. Popsie used to visit her brother, Dorothy's grandfather Edwin James, in Southend.

      In 1871 Mary Ann was living with her Uncle Henry Murrell and his family at West Road, West Mersea acting as a general servant. The census shows that she was 13 years old and born in Bermondsey.

      In 1891 at 14-16 Road, Lambeth RG12/399/49 page 38
      Charles E Broughton aged 33, a provision dealer, born in Westminster
      Marion Broughton his wife aged 32 born in Bermondsey
      Gretchen Broughton his daughter aged 5 born in Lambeth
      Hayden E Broughton his son aged 3 born in Lambeth
      Natalie G Broughton his daughter aged 1 born in Lambeth

      In 1901 at 4 Cranbrook Mansions, Lambeth - RG13/415/20 page 32
      Marion Broughton aged 37, a widow living on her own means, born in Bermondsey
      Gretchen Broughton her daughter aged 15, a theatrical artiste born in Lambeth
      Hayden E Broughton her son aged 13 born in Lambeth
      Natalie G Broughton her daughter aged 11 born in Lambeth

      The fact that Marion was calling herself a widow would assume that Charles her husband had died but he was in fact living with his widowed mother and sister at 40 Vincent Square, Westminster.
