Walter White, son of Walter White and Hannah Blazey, brother of Laura Elizabeth White, married Florence Mary Parsonage, daughter of Edward Parsonage and Eleanor Agnes Crosbie, early in 1898, in Kensington.

Dahlia Trevail, daughter of Joseph Trevail and Jane Rundle, in 1871, was cook, in the household of Thomas William Bramston, Conservative Member for South Essex, at the family estate of Skreens, Roxwell, Chelmsford, Essex. 

Then, in the 3rd quarter of 1876, aged 27, she married Frederick Mackness (bap. 14 Feb 1827), a sawyer, son of George and Susanna Mackness, at St Mark, North Audley Street (St Mark's, Mayfair) - now home to Mercato Mayfair, a cultural hub and sustainable community market. The marriage was short-lived, because in the 4th quarter of that same year, Frederick died, aged 49. 

In 1881, Dahlia Mackness (31), widow, was once again employed as a cook, in the household of Sir William Miller, 1st Baronet in London, at 1, Park Lane. 

Later in the 3rd quarter of 1881, Dahlia Mackness married Henry Charles Orton at St George's, Hanover Square. It was "third time lucky" for Henry, son of Charles Orton and Mary Leach, born in Warwickshire in 1838. Henry had first married Elizabeth Neal on 11 Oct 1863 in Leamington Spa, but Elizabeth died, aged 31, in 1867, in Shipston-on-Stour. That marriage didn't produce any children. Henry then married widow, Ellen Reynolds (née Carpenter), in 1869, in what was then Aston, Warwickshire. Their daughters: Florence Mary Orton, was born in 1870, in Southam; Nellie Rose in Warwick in 1873 and Lizzie in Watford in 1877. Then Ellen Orton died, aged 47, also in Watford, where Henry C Orton (42) Builder's foreman, was living at 6, Church Road, in 1881.

Henry and Dahlia had two children, both born at 6, Church Road, Watford:
  1. Charles Orton born 3 Jul 1882, bap. 24 Sep 1882 at St Andrew's, Watford
  2. Emily Maud Orton born 21 Sep 1884, bap. 2 Nov 1884 at St Andrew's
In 1891, Henry C Orton (52) Carpenter, wife Delia (sic) (42), Florence (21), Charles (8), Maud (6), plus boarders: Samuel Cos (21) and Albert Batchelor (19) were living in London at Worcester Street, St George Hanover Square.

Then Henry Charles Orton died in the 4th quarter of 1892, aged 54.

In 1901, Dahlia Orton (52) widow, was living at 16, Balfern Grove, Chiswick with Charles (18), Emily M (16) and three boarders: Alfred Hooke (22), Thomas Willcox (25) and Albert Clarke (27).

In 1911, Dahlia Orton (62) was living with her daughter Emily Maud and her husband, William Charles Creedon (27) Licenced Victualler at the Builder's Arms8 Wyvil Road, Lambeth. William Charles Creeden and Emily Maud Orton had married, in Brentford, in 1907 and, in 1910, William Charles Creedon had been the landlord of the Oxford Arms, 77 St Peter Street, Bethnal Green. 

Dahlia Orton died in 1925, aged 76, in Brentford.
