Louisa Mepham
« on: Wednesday 31 July 19 21:28 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am looking for the parents of my 3x great grandmother Louisa Mepham.
She was born in Chichester in 1812 according to census records. She died in 1858 in London.
She married Henry Godden and had five children in Brighton.,before moving to Shadwell ,London.
Thank you

Think this is probably the baptism of her husband:

Henry Gooden bp.24/9/1807 Brighton, illeg. son of Elizabeth.

Thanks, yes itís a possibility. He always had his birth as 1809, but it isnít far out.
I am frustrated at not finding anything regarding Louisa, I have trawled through baptisms and although Mepham seems to be a recurrent name in Sussex, I cannot find her.
