The [Ager/Wager link] - my great great great aunt, Martha Ager, married James Wager in 1863 (she didn't have to change her name much!). James brother was William Wager who ran the Compasses in Great Totham and the Fox in Rivenhall, and his sister was Elizabeth Wager who appears to have lived quite a long life at the Swan in Little Totham. He also had another sister, Eliza. She married Albert Binks whose parents ran the Victoria, Barking, and after Albert’s death she remarried William Bone who ran the Blue Anchor in Barking and was last seen in 1901 with the occupation of 'Publican' and living at 6 High Street, Ilford, Essex. *
