MARR_NOT: She and Charles Bell were not married, but were a couple.
Married Name: Her married name was Bell.
In the census taken on the night of 7th April 1861 Catherine (?) was the wife of the head of the household, Charles Bell. The address was 14 Martha Street, Haggerston East, Shoreditch, Greater London, England. Transcribed as BALL but is clearly BELL on the actual form - Note this must have been a very crowded dwelling as there were more than 4 familes containing more than 20 people at the one address. When Charles married 2 years later, he said he was single, so this may have been an irregular marriage. Their son Charles was living with them.
