This also occured in Yorkshire - Rev Matthew WILSON m Maria SMITH.
Maria's mother was Elizabeth THORNTON. Matthew's father was John.
Their first child was named John Smith WILSON and their 2nd was
Elizabeth Thornton WILSON. John was born in 1837 in Samoa and Elizabeth
in 1838 in Tonga. I just assumed that being so far from home they
used the family names from sentiment - one should never assume!!!! :)
