Thanks

Both fall into the "definitely maybe" category. Its only a couple of hours leisurely walk from either place to Balcombe, so not outside the realms of possibility.  But where I go to find out which is which is another matter...

It is interesting to me that the Bolney marriage is between a Bechley and a Geell. If that is a soft "G" in Geell, it is possibly a mis-transliteration of Cheal, another old branch of my family.

I think I will let this twig rest a while until I've tidied up some of the rest of the tree and may come back to it in the future. Other bits are feeling a bit light on information.

Thanks for all the help. I now know her proper name and have some possibles for her parents for another time.

Good idea.  It might make more sense later.
