  Tabanus: Batley Reporter and Guardian, Suppl., 15 November 1884, p. 2, lists the Lancashire players vs Yorkshire. Among the 80 names we find "E. Hall Wood, Bolton" and "E. Wood, Manchester".

  MissScarlett: In such matters, it would be useful to have a Victorian guide to the popularity of Christian names. Here I supposed <Edward>, <Ernest> and <Edgar> would lead the way.

The <Manchester Weekly Times> of July 9th 1887, p.8, lists the death of an <Ellen Louise, wife of Edward Hall Wood of Hatherleigh, Sharples, near Bolton>.

  Tabanus: Edward Hall Wood married Miss Appleton 16 Feb 1884.

<The bridegroom is unfortunately deaf and partially dumb, and the service had to be interpreted to him by his best man, Mr. Henry Wood, but his responses were distinctly heard throughout the building, and were marked with much feeling and earnestness. On the conclusion of the ceremony, the register was signed, and the bridal party quitted the church amid the congratulations of their friends, and the strains of the "Wedding March," played by the organist, Mr. S. H. Bellowes. A select party was subsequently entertained at breakfast at the residence of the bride's mother, No. 4, Beaconsfield-terrace, and in the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Wood preceded to Devon and, Cornwall, to pass their honeymoon.> (Newbury Weekly News and General Advertiser, 21 Feb 1884, p. 5)

  MissScarlett: < I suspect Edward Hall Wood, dea<f> from scarlet fever!>

I had imagined that a typo!

  Tabanus: I have Scarlett fever :)

Their son Edward was born 11 March 1885, but Ellen died 3 July 1887. And then his father John died in 1889. :(

  Tabanus: I'll request Edward Hall Wood. There are no alternatives to the "E. Hall Wood" in Westminster Papers.
