George Preston 18 Oct 1875 Boat Writer & Painter Married
Annie L Preston 08 Jun 1872 Unpaid Domestic Duties Married
LeonardHough 06 Dec 1905 Fitter (Boat Engines) Married

I'm not sure why Leonard and Emily weren't living together, unless it was for work. George Preston, who he was staying with, was also in a similar trade.
