Why not search the gro indexes for births?

I've checked the GRO website for any births with the name Gurney and MMN - Huckle. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any, unless the names have been transcribed incorrectly.

Do you know when Martha was born and where, as that should help to find her on the 1851?
