With some help from a kind lister and looking at Family Search, it
appears that Louisa Harriet Brown first married Henry B. Cox in
1872. Family Search submission says that he was Henry Byng Cox and
that they married on 27 Dec 1872 at Stanmore Rd, Christchurch, Canterbury.

Then there is an entry for Henry's death on 29 Jan 1873!! He was
apparently 41 years old. Their marriage lasted just one month. I
have just found on the NZ Archives site that there is a probate for
him at the Christchurch Archives and that he was a stock driver.

Also there is the death of their child before their marriage: Percy
Douglas Cox on 22 Dec 1872, who was supposedly born in Christchurch
sometime earlier that year.

I enjoy the challenge of sorting out the pieces of these puzzles.
