    • Marriage banns between Charles Richard BROCK, Bachelor, of the Parish of Anthony, Cornwall, and Elizabeth BALL, Spinster, took place on October 5th., 12th., and 19th., 1879 at Stoke Gabriel, Devon.

      Charles Rickard BROCK, of full age, Bachelor, Mariner, residing Anthony, Cornwall, son of William BROCK, Builder; married Elizabeth BALL, of full age, Spinster, residing Stoke Gabriel, daughter of Edward BALL, Labourer. Married on 28 October 1879 at Parish church in Stoke Gabriel. Both signed the register. Witnessed by Alice Helen BROOKING and the mark of Edward BALL.

      [The witness, Alice Helen BROOKING, can be found living with her widowed mother, Margaret MARTIN, in the 1881 census living in Paignton, Devon. Margaret was born Margaret Baker MARTIN and she married William BROOKING in 1837 at Paignton, Devon. It would appear that after the death of her husband, she resumed her maiden name. Margaret Baker MARTIN, baptised 5 April 1812, was the daughter of Richard MARTIN and Susanna BAKER who married at Stoke Gabriel on 6 February 1798. Elizabeth BALL was the daughter of Edward BALL married Sarah MARTIN at Stoke Gabriel on 4 October 1843. Sarah MARTIN was most likely the daughter of John and Elizabeth MARTIN, baptised 24 April 1814. One would assume therefore, that Alice Helen BROOKING, the witness at Elizabeth BALL's marriage, was related to Elizabeth BALL in some manner through a connection between their mothers, Margaret Baker MARTIN and Sarah MARTIN.
