Devon / Norah Jane Gliddon, 1881
« on: Sunday 12 February 17 08:52 GMT (UK)  »
The Free BMD birth record for Norah is GLIDDON Norah Jane  Dec quarter 1881 Holsworthy 5b 522.

However I cannot find her on the GRO site (mainly for her mother's Maiden name). Tried many ways but unsuccessful.

Maybe a fresh pair of eyes please?  :(

London and Middlesex / Sophia Alderson (ne Hosier)
« on: Saturday 17 December 16 14:26 GMT (UK)  »
Thomas Butson Alderson married Sophia Hosier in 14 Jan 1874 at Christ Church, South Hackney. Her father is recorded as John.
By 1881 (Class: RG11; Piece: 447; Folio: 45; Page: 11) Thomas is dead. Sophia is recorded as being born in Cheltenham in 1845 and there are three children including two who appear to be born before marriage.

I have failed miserably to find ANY record of Sophia before the Marriage  :(  Any pointers please!

In 1871 ( RG10; Piece: 1132; Folio: 85; Page: 13) Thomas (recorded as "Married") and his son John are Boarders in Portsea, Hampshire. Also in same house possibly appear to be Sophia's parents.
