William Tooze, son of Thomas Tooze and Mary James, married Mary Ann Tovell, daughter of George Tovell and Ellen Toose (sic) (m. at St James's Church, Piccadilly on 6 Oct 1831) in Greenwich, in 1868.

George Tovell died at 60, in 1868 J Quarter in STRAND Vol 01B Page 332.

In 1871, William Tooze (31) Tea Broker, born in Clapton, Middlesex, was living in Greenwich with wife Mary A Tooze (35) born in Vauxhall, Middlesex and Ellen Tovell (64) Widow, Mother-in-Law, born in 'Alberton, Devonshire' - methinks an H has dropped off the front of that once it got to London. :)

Unfortunately, I've not been able to find a baptism record for Ellen Toose (certainly a spelling mistake) to find out how she may be related to Thomas Tooze, but there has to be a possibility that this couple were cousins.

Ellen Tovell died, at 74, in 1881 D Qtr in GREENWICH Vol 01D Page 640. 

In 1881, William Tooze (41) Commercial Clerk was living at 5, Domville Grove, Camberwell (Domville Grove was off Albany Road, Camberwell. After it was demolished the land was covered over by the grass of Burgess Park), but this time living with Annie Tooze (29) whose birthplace was given as Long Sutton, Somerset. With a 16 year difference in birth years and a different birthplace, these look like different women, but I cannot confirm.

William Tooze died at 48, in 1887 D Qtr in GREENWICH Vol 01D Page 590.

She does not appear on the 1891 census, but Mary Ann Tooze died, at 64, in 1901 M Quarter in GREENWICH Vol 01D Page 673.

The couple don't appear to have children.
