Martin, they were born and met while living in Chorlton cum Hardy (Mary) and
Stretford (William), which was close together in Cheshire, Then later they
were both changed from Cheshire to Lancashire. They were married in the
Cathedral in Manchester, Lancashire which was a little East of Mary's and
William's birth places. I have them living at 28 Ormskirk Rd Pemberton,
Lancashire and his name is shown as SELLERS instead of Sellen in the 1881
