    Looks like Standstead or Standsted to me. Probably supposed to be Stanstead. In 1851 her birth is given as Hereford, St. Margarets.

    There is a birth registration for a Henrietta Parker, Sep Q. 1841, Registration District Ware in Hertfordshire. Stanstead St. Margarets came under the Ware registration district.

    Thank you very much JellyLegs, didn't think to look at the previous census.

    I usually look at the one before or after or both depending on the person's age and then go to FreeBMD to look for the birth then go from there. Doesn't always help though.
