Revised query Seeking maiden name for Ann married to Benjamin Lansdown about 1870

Journal by eastville

Ann(maiden name unknown)(b 1849)married Benjamin Lansdown (b 1840) about 1870. Ann is listed in census 1871 as being married to Benjamin.

Ann and Benjamin had a son William R Lansdown born 1873.

To make things complicated in 1881 census Benjamin and William were lodging with a family Arthur and Silvia Skidmore and their daughter. A familysearch for William reveals Arthur and Silvia are his parents. This is not actually true.

Ann died in 1875 at age 27 in Somerset.

Can anyone tell me Ann's maiden name.

I tried familysearch and came up with this possibility, but you would need to verify it in the parish records:

Benjamin Lansdown Bap: 06 DEC 1840 Bath, Somerset, England, Parents: Father, John Lansdown Mother: Elizabeth Harvey.

??You might want to take another look at the info you wrote above, as it seems a bit odd to me.
