    James & Sarah claim to have been married 
    • James & Sarah claimed that they did not understand French law and had not obtained birth certificates for two of their children. They did this in retrospect claiming that they had been married in Dalston, London in 1846.

      'qui se disent mariés légitimement à Dalston, près Londres, le 24 octobre 1846'

      In fact James had married Anna Date in Hackney, Dalston being part of Hackney at the time, in 1841 and as divorces could only be obtained by an Act of Parliament before 1858 it seems certain that James was still married to Anna in 1846 and Sarah was still married to John Sherrott, who lived until 1868.

      In France, of course, they could claim that they were legally married with little or no chance of being proved wrong. We have not understood either why Sarah always used the Sherrott name on the birth certificates of her children and maybe now we'll never know!

    James Holsworth Greenhalgh's death was announced in the Gentleman’s Magazine 
    • We know that James Holsworth Greenhalgh went to Jersey and/or Guernsey before he went to France, where he died in 1870. But why would his death be reported in 1851?

      The only thing we can think of is that his mother and father had disowned him, so deemed him to be dead as far as they were concerned. It is also possible that it was James himself who falsely reported his own death after he went away with Sarah Ann Dyke to try to ensure they wouldn't be traced.
