Hi Rosie99,

It took me so long to write out the information I forgot to make myself clear in what I wanted.

Luckily you have been able to work out that I was after locations for the items you have identified, so I thank you very  much for that.

There are a few other things to be identified if possible:

Thomas Strange/Harriet Strange marriage location;
Sarah Strange baptism location;
Betty Strange death sometime between 1797 and 1832;
Harriet Strange death sometime between 1827 and 1837; and
Thomas Strange death sometime between 1871 and 1881.

Yes, I have looked at these before and discounted them as almost all the family are in London after 1871 except for one son in Birmingham.

Godstone is in Surrey, and looks a possibility?

Agreed, but can't find a reason to be over the river.
