Found this:
The Haddington Courier dated 27th May, 1892 - death notice . "At Cawnpore, India, on the lst inst., JESSIE MARGARET HEPBURN or LANDELLS, wife of EDWARD TUMBER, of Cawnpore Cotton Mills, and fourth daughter of the late James Hepburn, factor, Preston Mains, Prestonkirk."

I now see you also found the above!

So...this will surely amaze you:

groom's name: Edward Samuel Dunn Tumber
groom's birth date: 1858
groom's age: 32
bride's name: Jessie Margaret Landell Hepburn
bride's birth date: 1852
bride's age: 38
marriage date: 14 Oct 1890
marriage place: Bombay, Bombay, India
groom's father's name: George Tumber
bride's father's name: James Hepburn

Jessie's death also appeared in:

Deaths as reported in 'Domestic Occurrences' in the Times of India 1892 Editions

This took a bit longer:-))

LANDELLS, Jessie M Wife Head F 30 1851 Preston Kirk, Scotland
LANDELLS, Alexander R Son Single M 1 1880 Preston Kirk, Scotland
Address: 13, Algernon Terr, Tynemouth County:Northumberland


LANDELLS, Alexander Married M 55 1826 Engine Fitter
LANDELLS, Jane Wife F 52 1829 Engine Fitter Wife
LANDELLS, Jane Daughter F 22 1859 Pupil Teacher

LANDELLS, Isabella Daughter F 19 1862 Pupil Teacher
Newcastle, Northumberland
LANDELLS, George W Son M 12 1869 Scholar Newcastle, Northumberland
Address: 17, Algernon Terr, Tynemouth County: Northumberland

In 1871, the above family had 2 more sons - Robert Whitelaw LANDELLS b 1854 and Alexander b I started looking and there is a tree on Ancestry which says:

Robert Whitelaw LANDELLS ( his brother married a 'WAITE" )
1878 5 Dec
Age: 25
Marriage to Jessie Margaret HEPBURN
Prestonkirk, Haddington, Scotland
It also says Robert died abt/aft 1881 ..maybe he went to India and Jessie went out to visit, sent the son home when she met Edward TUMBER....

the son Alexander is back in Prestonkirk with Benjamin HEPBURN and Grandma Sybella etc in 1891

and then tragedy. Unbelievable:
Name: Alexander R Landells
Birth: abt 1880
Death: Jan 1902 - Tynemouth, Northumberland

Deaths Dec 1904 LANDELLS Alexander 79 Tynemouth 10b 166

Births Sep 1858
Tumber Edward Samuel Dunn Medway 2a 282

You can check the TUMBER family out via the censuses - his brother Philip also went to India...

not sure who this one is:
Name: Edwd Tumber

Service Date: 1803-1826 Or 1848-1849
Service Location: India
Regiment or Unit Name: Her Majesty's 24th Regiment

he was wounded 13 Jan 1849(??)

You will see Edward TUMBER b 1888 in India in the 1901 and 1911 censuses - Father was Philip S TUMBER
