Taylor (Parish Records)

Thanks Jefff,

I think her given name was probably Amy and pet name was Annie, rather than the other way round. She styled herself both as Amy and Annie in census images. Unfortunately the marriage certificate is only a copy.
There is a lovely picture of the "cabinet maker" family hailing from Cheltenham and moving to Shoreditch in census' 1841 thru 1871. But the link is only the name Edwin, the profession and Cheltenham. There is no direct link with Amy/Annie.
Taylor isn't so rare, but this "Abbott" is intriguing. My first thought was that is may have been an earlier wife's maiden name being passed down - but no luck there.
What is really annoying is the complete absence of any birth/baptism record for Amy/Annie - at least with the correct father.
I just can't believe that she would have imagined the "Abbot" bit, nor being born in Whitecliff/Coleford.
