    • George and Lizzie married on 23 July 1870 in Samlesbury, possibly at the Wesleyan Chapel, following George's return from the long voyage to the East Indies. Their first child Mary was born in 1871.

      Their son George Herbert was born the following year in 1876. George died when his son was three years old. Elizabeth and her son went to live with her brother George (see 1881 Census) at 1 Grafton Street, Preston, Lancashire. He appears to have been more or less adopted by his grandfather because the 1891 Census reads Herbert Perry Margerison, age 15, grandson.
