I got this marriage date from the IGI index - but it doesn't show up in the GRO index for Q4 1837. Is this because it's in the Parish Register?
Candidate death date - Q1 1889 aged 73. Aston 6D 169
I have found a reference to him in the 1850 Post Office directory for the area - he is listed as a Shoemaker in Stoulton.
He and family appear to have moved to Norton, Worcestershire, which is the next village from Stoulton and then to 110 Spring Hill, Birmingham, Warwickshire where a number of their children were born. This would seem to have been between 1850 and 1853.
There is an entry in the 1863 Birmingham Directory (Post Office I think) for an Edward Holloway, Bootmaker at 43 Dean Street. He turns up again in 1867 at another address, 89 Charles Henry St. still in Birmingham.
The original transcript of the 1861 census on 1837online.com contains a number of errors - birthplaces Stanton instead of Stoulton. Real Glue Maker instead of Boot and Shoe Maker. John's age as 12 instead of 20.
There is a record of a Christening of Edward Holloway in Wick near Pershore in the IGI.
Son of John Holloway and Ann - 4 Jan 1818. A John Holloway married Ann Abell 9 Aug 1808 according to the IGI at Wick. The only Holloway, Hollaway and Hallaway records relate to this couple - so without it being concrete, I think there's a good chance that this is the right one. I'll go with it for now.
Just to confuse things a bit further, there were some children born to Edward Holloway and Olivia in Stoulton around the same period as those born to Edward and Elizabeth. I have no reason to believe it is the same Edward - but at the same time I have no other Edward Holloway to link it to.
I am pretty certain that the death date and certificate are for the rfight Elizabeth Holloway - the age is right and it mentions that she is Edward's widow. The only slight confusion is that he is quoted as a Commission Agent - rather than a shoemaker. The death was registered by a James Cotton, son in law. Both lived at 47 Herbert Road - where as Edward died at 23 Herbert Road. Presumably they all lived quite close together!
