    Notes 
    • Second child and eldest daughter of Robert and Ann. There is a record of birth of a Florence Campbell for 5 Sep 1845 in Sydney, NSW, Australia, her parents being Robert Campbell and Ann Sophia Riley. This is likely to be a match if the birthname of her mother can be sorted out.

      Of Australian interest is the fact that her great great uncle, Robert Campbell, in the course of his many interests, established a pastoral property called Duntroon in what is now Canberra, ACT, Australia. The homestead, called Duntroon, is currently the Officers Mess of the Royal Military College. Duntroon is an officer training centre for the Australian Army and the name of a Canberra suburb.

      Florence met her first husband in Montreal, Canada. He turned out to be an alcoholic and she sought the help of family acquaintance Dr James Gully (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Manby_Gully), who specialised in a water cure treatment near Malvern spa (which included treatment for alcohol abuse). He was born in Jamaica in 1808. Florence began an affair with the doctor - brief according to her testimony at the inquest into her second husband's death. She took as companion Mrs Jane Cannon Cox née Edward (though she used Edouard), whose husband had worked for Joseph Bravo in Jamaica, perhaps to guard her reputation. It was Mrs Cox who introduced Charles and Florence. When her husband died, Mrs Cox inherited considerable wealth.

      James Ruddick locates it at All Saints Church, Kensington, at 11:00 am on 7 Dec 1875
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Bravo has 3 Dec 1875 without identifying a location
      It is registered within St Georges Hanover Square but Kensington is still a possible location,,

      The date of the marriage in the data is the one given by Florence in a statement made during the hearings in respect of Charles Bravo's poisoning. See p.6 of bravo_royes.pdf in Media>Documents. [4, 6]
