The marriage of Captain D'Arcy Fraser, younger son of the late General Hastings Fraser, and Miss Esther Watson, youngest daughter of the late Mr. William Watson, of Newcastle, and of Mrs. Jessop, of 6 Bickenhall-mansions, took place quietly in London on Wednesday.

Morning Post, 1909-10-30; I can't explain the discrepancy in the dates: I've checked both, and they are as stated; it may or may not be related to the fact that Fraser had divorced his first wife for her adultery, in 1905 (Civil Divorce records)
