Thomas Evans & Elizabeth Evans formerly Cayzer nee Wilcox.

I have very little on these two...and as usual I would love to know everything!

The 1841 gives their ages as 65 (Thomas) & 50 (Elizabeth) neither born in County (Cheltenham) The 1851 gives a little more info, Thomas was a gardener, they were both born in Worcestershire. Ages as of 1851: Thomas 81 & Elizabeth 61, although they have moved house, they are still in Cheltenham. By 1861 Elizabeth, now a widow, can be found in Hull with her daughter Maria (from her first marriage to George Cayzer) Details of these three censuses can be seen on Maria's page

Thomas & Elizabeth married on the 22 March 1841 in Cheltenham, both were widowed, Thomas' father was also Thomas Evans, Elizabeth's father was Thomas Wilcox.

We can therefore assume the following:
Thomas Evans born between 1770 & 1776 in Worcestershire. Father Thomas Evans
Thomas married Person Unknown before 1831 (when son Thomas was born)
Person Unknown died between 1831 & 1841
Thomas married Elizabeth Cayzer 1841
Thomas died between 1851 & 1861

As for Elizabeth we can assume the following:
Elizabeth Wilcox born 1790/1791 in Worcestershire. Father Thomas Wilcox.
Elizabeth married George Cayzer before 1816 (when daughter Maria was born)
George Cayzer died between 1837 & 1841
Elizabeth married Thomas Evans in 1841
Elizabeth died between 1861 & 1871
