She married William MADDER Oct 1872 in Hackney with witnesses Henry MADDER & Jane FORDHAM.
Are you sure Jane the witness was Fordham? There also seems to be a mark (x). But it doesn't say "her mark", as is the case on some other entries.
Could she have signed her name, which is rather unclear, and then have made a mark as well?
It looks to me as if the name faintly written at the bottom of the register might be a clarification of her name, possibly saying Jane Lowden?
Or perhaps the x was put there in reference to her named being clarified?
