Another contemporary record of the marriage gives the bride as Charlotte Maria Tucker —
Marriages at Calcutta, February 4, 1835, in The Asiatic Journal and Monthly Miscellany (August 1835) : 240*
But this is presumably not the author of that name, (1821-1893 *).

At Sea, August 7, 1836. Mr. C. L. Smartt of the Pilot Service.

Curiously, C. M. Tuckerʼs poem “The Spirits of Light,” in A.L.O.E. (her pseudonym), Glimpses of the Unseen : Poems (Edinburgh, 1854), has a long passage on the death of a mariner — “one of a thoughtless crew” — who falls from the rigging and is lost at sea.
