At one point I wasn't sure who Amos Weeks, born in 1851 (mentioned above) had married in the first quarter of 1871, was it Constance Harriet Amherst or Hannah Wright.  But with thanks to Anne Baker I now know it was Hannah.  Anne tells me that Constance was born on 28 February 1843 and died on 6 October 1879.  She married Arthur Edward Monck on 8 November 1871.  He was born on 12 January 1838 and died on 1 April 1933.  He assumed the name Middleton.
