This took a while and will need to be checked out. To find their parents will need the marriage cert. as posted by Rosie.

** GRO birth record for Alice states motherís maiden nameas May.


I have just checked on FindMyPast & ancestry, unable to see details but I note one Alexander Forbes married 1767 Middlesex a Large number of ladies named Christian also married in Middlesex same year. Might be worth a look?


Christian Forbes
Birth 1738
Burial 23 September 1816
St Andrew's Church, Chichester, Sussex


I note on family search there were a number of deaths in Middlesex for an Alexander Forbes
1769 - 1788, sadly no detail, might be worth checking the burials on FindMyPast or ancestry.


This seems to be the only one mother Christian.

Margaret Forbes
Christening18 January 1769
Saint Mary Matfelon, Stepney, Middlesex, England
Father: Alexander Forbes
Mother: Christian

As mentioned no marriages in England, I did find one in Scotland in 1753 but no daughter Margaret. Sadly no Margaret Forbes parents Alexander & Christian born in Scotland.

So either the records did not survive. Maybe Christian & Margaret moved to Sussex, as there is no Alexander mentioned on the document Rosie posted.


Eliz FAGE to Edw BALDWIN   Marriage   31 Jul 1796   Bedfordshire   Sandy : St Swithin

Edw & Eliz also had 4 more children in Sandy 1798 & 1810.
Second son Jn 1800 died 1801 & Edw a Labourer was buried 19 Apr 1812, I presume husband of Eliz?.

So I guess not Elizabeth Butcher 1788.


William on 1861 census?
