John Godwin is on Geni with 2 wives with similar names

* Mary Anne Godwin - daughter of James Burbidge 1801-1851 and Ann Burbidge 1797-1866

* Mary Anne Godwin - daughter of Joseph Brown and Mary Brown

Due to a technical issue (raised with Geni IT) I have had to create a 3rd wife {place holder for wife} Godwin and attach the children to it.
* 1846 Frederick Alexander Godwin
* Fanny Godwin, infant
* Jane Rickwood
* 1844 Mary Boxall
* Mary Godwin, infant

Can anyone add any supporting documentation on this family so we can determine which Mary Anne he married?

What evidence ties Mary Boxall to John Godwin and Mary Anne Godwin

I think they are 2 different families that have become confused - 1 family that remained in England and the other family that went to Canada.

1851 Canada Census
Jno GODWIN age 34 born England
Mary age 34 born England
Eliz age 11 born England
Sarah age 9 born England
Thos age 7 born England
Mary age 6 born England
Jno age 2 born Canada

1851 England Census
John GODWIN age 41
Mary age 37
Catherine 12
Mary Ann 10 (hard to read)
George 7
William 5
Gibson 3

What evidence is there that the Mary who went to Canada with her parents in 1846/49 is the daughter of John and Mary who stayed in England?
