I found 12 VAUS and variants in the London Quaker records.  They are all burials but mention their years of birth.

I have found a burial record for Benjamin VAUS in 1766 at St Saviour, Southwark. I wonder if he fits in with these Quaker families.  His wife had died and a friend arranged the burial. With no Quaker burial I don't have a birth.  He may, of course, been C of E  but I haven't been able to find a baptism.

I assume you have tried Vaux? I have a Susannah Vaux listed in the 1843 Annual Monitor of Obituaries listing her as 93 from Croydon Surrey ( excuse my geographic ignorance as to closeness to Southwark) - so born approx. 1750

Yes, this is a name that has many variants and transcription errors.

There was a Benjamin VAUS who was baptised in September 1748 at Croydon who I feel is a bit young to be my man as he married his second wife in 1762.

All the Quaker BMDs pre-1837 are online at Ancestry (and note it is is births, not baptisms, which Quakers didn't do.)

I still haven't managed to visit the Friends Library  :(

I'm still trying to knock down this brick wall.

Are there any Quaker marriage records for London?
