Notes for Sarah (Spouse 2)
Maiden name from Bob Hogg.

From Bob Hogg.
Marriage at St Mary, Edge Hill, Liverpool, on July 1, 1841:
John Leech, Full, Bachelor, Farmer, Newcastle-under-Lyme,
Father Thomas Leech, Farmer
Sarah Whittaker, 19, Spinster, Walton on the Hill,
Father Thomas Whittaker, Brewer
Witnesses: Thomas Whittaker, Jos. Bristol, Sarah Leech, Thomas Leech


also from Bob Hogg
In 1843 Sarah gave birth to a daughter named Mary Adelaide and there were almost certainly others who died prematurely before the death of Sarah's husband himself.

A daughter who survived childhood was Maria, born in 1851.

Sarah’s husband appears to be the John Leech whose death was recorded in the March quarter of 1855 in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Sarah was pregnant at the time and she apparently preferred to be with her mother in Liverpool when the child, Eveline, was born later that same year.

Sarah must have returned to Staffordshire, or at least visited the county,
for her to agree to a marriage proposal from widower Frederick Warner Tunnicliffe. They may have been acquainted already, of course, as is the way with farmingfamilies. Anyway, the upshot was that everyone traipsed back to Sarah's home town of Liverpool to get married in 1859.
