On the GRO Birth index the mothers maiden name is also Flavell  :-\

In 1861 I think Fanny is living with Benjamin Flavell and wife Sarah listed as a niece and I think this is the same family in 1851 living in Kingswinford  where Sarah listed as a daughter.   The image could well be Flavell

Benjamin Fewel    32 Labour b Sedgely
Sarah Fewel 30 b Kingswinford
Fanny Fewel 8 b Kingswinford
Edmond Fewel 10 Months  b Kingswinford
Susana Fewel 23  Lodger b Sedgley

The GRO Birth index also lists Edmond Flavell above b1850  with mothers maiden name as Flavell

I think this is the parent's marriage in 1841 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N64Q-T31

Thank you all so far you have confirmed what I already have found BUT Benjamin had a brother Edmund who married Sarah's sister Mary. Edmund died of cholera in 1849 and was buried the same day as his 16 mnth old daughter, his wife died giving birth to their son EDMUND IN 1850. Edmund ONLY had two children baptised Maria and Edmund (baptised after both parents died, Edmund turns up on the 1851 census as son of Benjamin with fanny as daughter of BENJAMIN and as you have foud on 1861 census fanny is niece not daughter which makes me think both children were infact EDMUND'S. If I can see the marriage it should confirm if Fanny was Benjamin or Edmond's daughter. This is further complicated with the sudden appearance in 1871 of William born 1846 as son of Benjamin was he another of Edmond's children or was he really Benjamin's son?  and where was he hiding 1851 and 1861 and what happened to him after 1871? ???
