This family has always been one of my more troublesome lines, the surname being Jones and Annie's place of birth varying between Pendlebury, Salford and Manchester depending on which census return you read.

Edward and Martha married in August 1870, so even conservative counting on fingers shows that Annie was on the way before the wedding.

The family appear to be fairly mobile. Newtown is about 2 miles north of Pendlebury and Eccles is about 3 miles from Pendlebury and to the south. Of course they may have chosen to have Annie baptised at Eccles to disguise the fact that she had arrived so soon after the marriage!
