Thank you so much Claire, that's fascinating.

When I saw Sarah listed as a witness at Thomas wedding my heart sank as my first thought was that it couldn't be her, she was married by then. After quickly checking, her marriage to William Arrowsmith wasn't until July 20th, so she would indeed still be Sarah Sutton. Fascinating.

I'm feeling more confident that this must be her. Ash Magna/Parva/Acres are such small settlements, it seems unlikely they would be listed as her place of birth for her entire life if she was in fact from Broughton—even though they are quite close. I have found a birth registered 1845, Wem Shropshire for a Sarah Sutton. I feel confident this must be her.

ASH ACRES the name of the abode at Sarah's baptism is where they were living in the 1851 census

Mary is proving to be quite difficult to pin down

Wow, thank you for all your hard work! That looks like it could be her. Interesting that Mary's daughter is named Sarah Elizabeth - that would be her mother and her sisters names!

In one of the only image I have of Sarah, her and her sister are holding two babies that look almost identical. I wonder if Mary's two girls, Martha Ann and Mary were twins.

It's posssible isn't it, I'm not sure of what the registration districts are in Wales, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave it for now. It's getting a bit late  ;D ;D

I'm pretty sure it's the right family :)

Well thank you so much and good night! You've hopefully helped me knock down a very tough brick wall in my research of Sarah and her family. :D
