Note on Husband: David George GORDON (1)

Archie Roberts wrote that

 

"Tilly married a rotter who just killed her of a broken heart".

 

It has never been revealed what wrong David Gordon did to Tilly, but as she died in 1878, and David is to be found in the 1881 census with a "wife" Fanny (thus far - 2008 - I have found no registered marriage for this couple) ... could this be a clue?
