Edward Henry Spencer Hollier

One result back from the Poplar 'Marriage Challenge' is an 1858 marriage of Edward Henry Spencer Hollier to Elizabeth Yabsley. He was an engineer, son of Henry Spencer Hollier. But I've never come across either father or son before, or seen them in any census. Who were they?

Do tell us their ages, residence and her father's details so we can look for them!

George Joseph Yabsley died 1886 aged 86 Poplar district.

Elizabeth Yabsley in 1841 aged 9 at Brittania Place, Limehouse HO107/701/7 f24 p40
household of George Yabsley, 40, a hatter.

1851 same family in same place
HO107/1554 f302 p14, but George now a shipbuilder's clerk; Elizabeth aged 19, born Limehouse.

1861 same family at RG9/306 f132 p3, Elizabeth is living with her parents, listed as Yabsley but married, occupation "engineer's wife, husband in Egypt".

1871 same family at RG10/583 f4 p1-2: Elizabeth Hollier, widow, teacher of music.

So perhaps EHS Hollier died abroad?
