Ellen Tibett c1863 wed 1888 #2188 to William Thomas Woodward

From on Monday, 5 September, 2011
Hi my name is Emily and I have been tracing the Tibbett Family Tree and you have a record under William Tibbett that maybe incorrect as my records conflict with yours.
Ellen Tibbett who married William Thomas Woodward.
Ellen's maiden name from marriage certificate 1888 #2188 was Tyler her fathers name was William Tyler and her mothers name was Mary Chandler. I have details of other marriages as she was married three times in total although one I believe to be defacto.
Ellen was born in England around 1848
Ellen married Thomas Burfield Galland in 1876 in New Zealand had 3 children only one survived called Lillian Ada.
She then started a relationship and took on the name of William Tibbett about 1879 and had 4 children Ethal, Eugina Maude, Caroline Annie Robeina and Whilhemina Ellen. I have not been able to find marriage certificate for this but on her husband William Tibbett's death certificate, which she was the informant advised that they where married in New Zealand 1879.
Then when William died in 1888 she married her Uncle in-law William Thomas Woodward who's wife died a couple of days before Ellen's husband and then had two children Rose Amelia Tyler and Trank Leicester.
I believe she was still married when she was in a relationship with William Tibbett as Thomas Burfield didn't die until 1926 but his daughter Lillian believed that he was dead as on Ellen's death certificate she wrote that her father was deceased as she was the informant of her mothers death.
The thing that made me realise the information was different as you had Alice and Eliza one born before and the other after where born in Castlemaine and the marriage certificate states she was born in England.
I think that is about it, if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks, Emily
Thankyou for your very helpful explanation.
I see in UK records, Mary Ann Chandler wed Jan-Mar 1848 to William Tyler in District of Kingsclere in the county of Hampshire, and in the same district is the registration of birth of Ellen Tyler,Births Apr-Jun 1848,
I see in Victorian records,
Mr Tibbett 45 came Jul 1886 on the Te Anau with Mrs Tibbett 38, Master J Tibbett 8, Miss M Tibbett 6 and Miss J Tibbett 3
Ellen TYLER and William Tibbett
Wilhelmina Ellen Tibbett 1888 #589 registered in Jan 1888 when about a month old.
Wilhelmina Ellen Tibbett 1888 #12190 aged 9 months, died in mid August
William Tibbett 1844 - 1888 #344 aged 44, son of Robina Want and Robert Tbbbett, died at Nathalia
William's mother remarried
Carol Woodward nee Want1831 - 1888 #343 aged 57, dau of Hannah and John Want, died at Kotupna
Ellen Tibbett wed 1888 #2188 to William Thomas Woodward, nect called Alf Thos Woodward, and lived at Castlemaine
1. Rose Amelia Tyler Woodward 1889 #19949
2. Frank Leicester Woodward 1891 #31483
as there were 18,000 weddings in 1888, average of 1500 a month, looks like Ellen was not widow long
about 16,500 deaths, averages 1375 a month
