This is the address #17 Mary Ann Ballard gives when she marries; she presumably preceded her sister Ellen in service there. Edwin is the prime suspect as the uncited father of her first child #208 Edith Ellen; he would have been about 15, she 23, at the time of the birth (17 Dec 1885), which she registered at the last possible date, 27 Jan 1886; in 1875 it was made criminal to fail to register a birth within 42 days, and an illegitimate one was registrable only by the mother.
