Another Hazell/Marsh family?  Probably the Arthur and Eliza from your list above.

1851  Peterborough, Cambridge
Mary Ann Hazell  wife   30 Cambridge
Arthur Hazell       son     7       ď
Eliza Hazell          dau     4       ď

According to the GRO website, Williamís eldest children have the motherís maiden name of Langley.   There is a marriage 1840 in Cambridge for a William Hazell and Susan Langley.
Looks like Susan must have died.
The children from Emily, born 1850, onwards have the motherís maiden name of Marsh.

It looks like youíve found them Jon, so that marriage can be ruled out.
I see Thomas and Sarahís children all used the middle name of Laxton, which makes me wonder if they actually got married.

Thereís a marriage for Sarah Evident m. Henry Collis Belsham in 1836.
According to the censuses, she was born St.Lukeís, Clerkenwell about 1815.

That would make your Sarah only 13 at that time though.

This is the Harvey family in 1871.  Still using the name James

Correction.  Should say 1861

Iíve just found this.

'St Sepulchre had a large population, and a high death rate, so like most city churches had difficulties with finding burial places. The space immediately around many churches, including St Sep. was crowded in with development, and noticeably higher than the church where it was still open ground, due to the number of burials. The church authorities established a separate burial ground in Chick Lane, and the majority of burials from the mid-18th century took place there, thus 'Chick' or 'The Chick'. Some burials (generally though there is no totally consistent pattern) the better off were buried in the Bay, ground which was still available adjacent to the church. The really well-off (or church officials like parish clerks, beadles etc) might be buried in the church itself, thus occasional entries such as 'buried in the left ile' - ile is what is now spelled aisle.'

Are you sure that the Susannah Houghton who married Henry Clarke was the daughter of Thomas?  Only, Thomasí brother William also had a daughter Susannah, born 1770, who also appears to have married a Henry Clarke.

The 3 from the 1835 looks as though it could have worn away, and was originally a 5.

Chick and Bay arenít neighbourhoods.  My guess would be that they refer to the specific areas in the churchyard where the burials took place.
