Henrietta Stewart was born in East Indies according to 1871 census (age 44, as Henrietta Barton).

Thank you for your thoughts. I have looked into records for her various children and I can only locate a birth certificate for Sarah Ann. I have ordered a copy from GRO and will see what that can tell me. I will post any further details I come across.

I had a look at Lancs OPC

http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Search/indexp.html

and there are baptisms for William 1852 and Alice 1848

Wondered if you had found Alice Jun Q Liverpool 1848 MMN Stewart

Thank you for the pointer to Lancashire OPC. From there I have found the baptism records for William and Alice, but these have presented something I've not come across before - there are baptism records for both children in St Nicholas church, Liverpool, AND for St Paters, Woolton. Same names, same baptism dates etc. Other childrens' names appear in both records as well.

My thought is that either St Nicholas or St Peter, Woolton is the mother church, and that is why the baptisms appear in both registers.

Do you mean.other children from the same family
#posted same time understand now

It was common.to.baptise several.children.together ..saved on costs

Re Sherlock.middle name.it is common.in Scotland and other places to.have a surname as one of your middle names
Traditionally First daughter takes mothers mothers maiden name second daughter takes fathers mothers maiden name
Further daughters may take grandmothers maiden names so.it definitely helps in.tree building

A surname as middle name can also be used sometimes to.indicate a birth.father .

A quick update - I have found other records for Henrietta's children (birth and death) but there is no mention of the name Sherlock. This is where the famous Sherlock would be very useful :-)
