HUMPHRIES Elizabeth Sarah (or Sophia?) Brighton 1856/7/8?
« on: Friday 02 September 22 19:19 BST (UK) »
Still seeking an Elizabeth Sarah or Elizabeth Sophia HUMPHRIES who is known to have been in Brighton, Sussex, in the years 1856, 1857, and 1858. Those on BMDs do not seem to tie up. Guesstimated age in 1857 between 20 and 30 years. (BUT this could be incorrect!)
Any assistance appreciated. TCS.

Any idea of where she was born?

An Elizabeth Humphreys, 16, born Brighton, Sussex, with parents George and Elizabeth in Lambeth in 1851.
52 Walnut Tree Walk.
George is a Shop Keeper.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGKH-2YJ

Five children born Brighton, three born Lambeth.
I think some of those ages may be a year or two out.

Well, there is a Brighton connection to 54 Walnut Tree Walk in 1851, as the head of household, Jane Parsons Luxford, was born there, according to the census.

Watkins's Commercial and General London Directory, 1852
Humphreys G. coal deal. &c. 52 Walnut tree walk, Lambeth

Anyway, it looks like George and Elizabeth's daughter Elizabeth (Sarah) may have died in 1851.
