Can't locate Samuel in 1861 Census can't locate a marriage to Wilhelmina.

It looks like they are the Knights i have been looking for. You have found more information than i was able to. I haven't located a marriage for them, and i think Wilhemina might have been married to Thomas Roberts (who was born abt 1823 in Northampton) before marrying Samuel Knight. I can now get Wilheminas death certificate & carrying on researching.

This looks like this could be the marriage

Marriages Dec 1870

KNIGHT Zebedce Samuel C Northampton 3b 208
ROBERTS Wilhelmina Northampton 3b 208

They either married after the children were born or the children have a different mother. A copy of one of the birth certificates will give you the information.

Thank you for so much information, I only knew about 3 children so it was nice to see the others and a shame to see 4 of them died young. I will get certificates for the marriages & Zebedees birth. You have given me a lot to be going on with until i get the certificates and i feel closer to this part of the family now.
