From http://acollins.customer.netspace.net.au/Kendall%20Butler%20Connections.htm
 
Nicholas and Sophia Ann had one daughter Mary, born in 1847, while they were living in Bodmin. Sophia Ann died in 1854 and Nicholas died in 1858.
 
In 1861 Mary is living with her aunt Emily Colenso in Lower Durnford Place, Devonport. Emily was a schoolmistress.
 
On the 17th September 1863, in Devonport, Mary marries Spencer Percival Butler. She is 16 and he is a lawyer aged 35. He was educated at Cambridge and the son of George Butler, the headmaster of Harrow between 1805 and 1829. In May 1862 Mary’s uncle, the Bishop of Natal, left Natal and spent the next three years in England. With his connections to Harrow, as a former master, he may have arranged or facilitated this marriage.
 

Mary and Spencer were married for over 50 years and had 10 sons and 3 daughters.
