Notes for Maria OMAN:

The following details appear inthe 1861 census, all Little Thames Street, Whitechapel, Middlesex, England:
William Oman Head Mar 59 Dock Master Buckinghamshire
Mary A Oman Wife Mar 59 Surrey Bermondsey
Marion Knibbs Granddaughter 14 Scholar Niddlesex Mile End Old Town
Ellen Munford Granddaughter 12 Scholar Middlesex Aldgate
Thomas Carr Visitor Widr 47 Master Mariner Norfolk Lynn
Ann Dalgleish Servant UnM 59 Cook Middlesex Limehouse
Mary A Trackman(?) Servant UnM 18 House Servant Essex Shalford
Maria Rushworth Daur 35 Middlesex Limehouse

Maria Rushworth is of course, Maria Oman. Unfortunately the census doesn't say if she was married or widowed at that time.

I believe that William and Mary Oman are the parents of Maria Oman. We can see in the household that there is a granddaughter Marion, who I am sure is in fact Maria Knibbs, the daughter of Edwin George Knibbs and his wife Elizabeth, who was Maria's sister.

It's interesting to see Thomas Carr living in the household as a visitor and widower. We know that he eventually went on to marry two of the females from this family. He married Maria Oman who died in 1876, and then he married her neice Maria Knibbs in 1877.
