Default Pearly Poll's Husband

I have always assumed that those who are active on here also keep abreast of things on Howard Brown's excellent JTRForums site. I know that many do, but for those who may not visit there as often as they do here - or at all - and may have missed the find, here's a photo of Thomas Fogarty, the 'vicious blind beggar' who married Pearly Poll in 1895.

When the 1893 Catholic Census was digitised on FindMyPast, he and Poll were discovered living together in North East Passage, St. George in the East. The priest who carried out the census bracketed the two together and commented 'not married'. The discovery slotted into the painstaking research on Poll that had been undertaken by Debra Arif, (Gareth Williams and Robert Linford also made significant contributions - I hope I haven't missed anyone) and led to the couple's marriage, subsequent history and deaths. More info about Fogarty can be found here:

I've just noticed a typo in my post. The happy couple were in fact joined in holy matrimony in 1893 (2nd December) at the Church of the English Martyrs in Great Prescott Street.

Thanks for that. I realise that he was blind but I wonder if he was born without eyes. He certainly appears to have none in the photograph.
