Titcomb brothers marry Ryde sisters

A volunteer transcriber for the Families in British India Society came across this entry for 1879 of Allen's Indian Mail ( a journal published weekly),
Two brothers marrying two sisters!
Ryde-Titcomb—Ryde-Titcomb, Sept. 16, at Woking, Surrey, Edward Harrow Ryde, to Frances Sarah; also at the same time and place, Arthur Leyon Ryde, to Florence Eleanor, daughters of the Right Rev. Jonathan Holt Titcomb, D.D., Bishop of Rangoon.

Their father, Jonathan Holt Titcomb, was the first Bishop of Rangoon from 1878 to 1881, when he was forced to leave Burma, following an accident in which he fell down a cliff.
