James, Which part of UK did your tree come from? I don't know anything of the Rivingtons, but decided I was getting nowhere with my Studdarts and decided to try spouse names. Still getting nowhere!!! My Rivington was Jane Rivington,father John was a coachman, of Clayton Square, Liverpool.She was full age when she married Amos Bradley Studdart, mariner, in 1850. Does this help?
