bullet  Marriage Notes:

George Spicer witness at marriage, assumed to be younger brother.
Why they married in Wimborne Minster is somewhat of a mystery although there is a connection: William Pitt owned a house on Holt Green there in 1838 and there is the family of John (38) and Mary Jenkins Pitt (36) who lived on King Street in 1841 with a large family. Married in 1823 in Wimborne (Ancestry database)
Exactly who John was is not determined, but likely another son of William Pitt and thereby a brother of Sarah possibly. The Jenkins surname is curious since in the 1861 census of Charles Besant there is a William Jenkins, age 5, grandson, who remained with the family for several decades.
John Pitt was born in Ringwood, Hants, per the 1861 census. John and Mary are also on the 1851 census at the same place, but the children are slightly different.
