      Caution: there is a tree at the Society of Genealogists in London which has James Howes 1795, undertaker, marrying Sarah Tink at St Andrew. We don't know how reliable this tree is. Could be we have the two marriages to Rowney and Tink the wrong way around. HOWEVER, given the ages of children and the date of the marriage I have found, I'm inclined to believe we have it right.

      From correspondent Margot Young:
