Jane Ann married Alfred Hardy, a Master Grocer from Sunderland at The Parish Church of St Thomas Bishopwearmouth on 23 June 1893. She was shown as the daughter of John Patton Marley (deceased) a tailor of Marske, whilst Alfred was shown as the son of William Hardy, a Police Pensioner. This tale takes us 40 miles south of Sunderland to the North Yorkshire coastal villages of Marske and Saltburn both ‘by-the-Sea’ and others around the ancient town of Guisborough.
