Robert Fuller, eldest son of Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Bass, married Elizabeth Ann Bradley, eldest child, daughter of Henry Bradley and Mary Thompson, on 9 Apr 1832, at the church of St Mary the Virgin, Chigwell. 

Robert and Elizabeth Ann had a dozen children: 
  1. Eliza Fuller born 1832 (only mentioned on 1841 census)
  2. James William Fuller bap. 16 Mar 1834 in Chigwell
  3. Ann Fuller born 1837 (died, aged 10 and buried on 14 Feb 1847)
  4. Emily Fuller bap. 7 Apr 1839 at Woodford, St Mary the Virgin
  5. Samuel Thomas Fuller born 1841, bap. 25 Jul 1841
  6. Elizabeth Ann Fuller born 1843, bap. 8 Oct 1843
  7. William Robert Fuller born 1845, bap. 21 Dec 1845
  8. Robert Fuller bap. 19 Mar 1848 in Chigwell
  9. George Fuller bap. 19 Jan 1851 at Woodford, St Mary the Virgin
  10. Anne Fuller born 1853, bap. (as Annie) on 23 Jan 1853
  11. Jane Ann Fuller born 1855 (died, aged 5, and buried on 11 May 1860)
  12. Mary Ann Fuller bap. 12 Sep 1858
In 1841, living at Woodford Bridge Flant, are Robert Fuller (25) Ag Lab, Elizabeth (25), Eliza (9), James (7), Ann (4) and Emily (2).

In 1851, at Winn Bridge, Woodford, West Ham, we find Robert Fuller (39) Ag Lab, Elizabeth (36), James Fuller (17) Ag Lab, Emma (Emily?) (12), Samuel (9), Elizabeth (7), William (5), Robert (3) and George (0).

The next time we see them is in 1871, in Woodford Bridge, West Ham, with Robert Fuller (59), Elizabeth Ann (56), George (20), Ann (18), Mary Ann (12) and Emily Eliza (2). Although Emily Eliza is listed on that census as a "Daughter" relative to the head of the household, the birth certificate shows that her mother is Annie Fuller, then of Nightingale Place, Wanstead. No father's name is listed, so clearly an illegitimate child, being brought up by the grandparents. 

By 1881, they've moved to 1 Essex Cottages, Maynard RoadWalthamstow. Robert Fuller (70) still an Agricultural Labourer, Elizabeth Fuller (66) Laundress, Mary Ann (22), Ada Fuller (9) Granddaughter (this will be Annie's second illegitimate daughter) and Charles Berwick (23) Boarder. 

Robert Fuller died in 1882, aged 72.

In 1891, widow, Elizabeth Ann Fuller (78) Retired Laundress, is living alone at 13 Brunswick Street, Walthamstow. (Although, separately, there appear to be two other households also living at the same address.)

Elizabeth Ann Fuller died in West Ham in 1898, aged 84.
