Mary Carrol was my GGGrandmother born c1825 Ireland.
She married in 1848 in Southwark Surrey to John Carroll
By 1861 census they had
William Carroll born 1848 Lambeth
Thomas 1850 "
Elizabeth 1851 "
Mary 1852 "
John 1853 "
Margaret 1858 "
Jeremiah 1862 "
On 1871 all the younger children were in homes and the elder ones were living together with William and Head of the house.
Found the death of John Carroll 1864 Lambeth aged 40 but can't find any records of Mary Carroll at all. She was the informant of John's death cert
Can anyone else find her?

There's a Mary Carroll widow here in 1871 http://search.ancestry.co.uk/iexec?h...=&pid=28947272 age is a bit out but she could have abandoned the children unable to support them and just moved away.
