@ toni

Thanks for finding the other families living nearby in those census records.  The name Duckitt rings a bell but I'd need to check my files to find out why.

Regarding 'Monley' - my personal theory is that her name was some version of Misellie which was shortened to Ellen in the 1881 census.
Paternal family names: Lee & Smith
Maternal family names: Hollis, Lambert, Donaghue & Osborne.

yes it is and I was told by a very good researcher that Edward davis was sarah born 1818-1823 was her father.he also told me he was a witness at this wedding.it should make it easier to find sarah now I hope??I wonder if she was born in oxford?as one cencus says born Gloucester but other cencus say birth unknown??this is a big break through I think.i wonder if sarah Scriven was her mum and Edward and sarah Scriven were not yet a item??got visitors to day but will work on tyhis tomorrow.
where did you find the wedding of Christina hunt and and Edward orchard please?is it on ancestry?
I wonder if we can find a birth for Edward to see his age here whether he was also Charles davis's father.i am quite excited.thank you so much for the info.we know sarah was with Robert hughes by 1843 as they had a child but never been able to find either one in 1841 cencus.thanks ever so for the info

yes my info came from ian o aswell and he works from records not the computer!!!haven't heard from him for years but he was sure Edward was sarahs dad.i too must go through my folders and find his letters and have another look at them.together maybe we can solve sarahs birth.it would be great as she was my husbands 3x gt granma and is the biggest brickwall in my tree.

I have found a sarah davis in 1841 with a ann scriven but no actual proof its the right sarah as she seemed to be living in independent means with her mum sally davis.

just looked at ian o's letter to me.he is sure that the dward davis that was a witness was sarahs dad.
he also says in the same letter that Robert hughes perants=Robert hughes and mary had a daughter mary hughes born 1920 who married a saunders in 1844/45?the saunders came from sussex but were in devon by this time.
I am desperately looking for Edward davis's birth and I hope marriage at the moment but not at all sure where he was born.i wish the marriage had been later for Christina then we might have got more info!!!!
