Thomas Chapman, the marriage record says he was the son of John Chapman, Farm Bailiff, married Lucy Hockley, daughter of George Hockley and Eliza Crow, at Holy Cross Church, Felsted on 29 Feb 1876. The record says Thomas was then resident in Camlin Town (I'm sure they mean Camden Town). 

In 1871, Lucy Hockley (19) had been a Housemaid in nearby Belsize Park.

Thomas and Lucy had one daughter:
  1. Ellen Eliza Hockley Chapman b. 1877 M Quarter in PANCRAS Volume 01B Page 201. Died in 1877 S Quarter in PANCRAS Volume 01B Page 80
There were no further children to this couple, anywhere in Britain in the subsequent 20 years; I was also unable to find them on any census and, without any clues to Thomas' date or place of birth, no idea where next to look.
