    Can anyone help me find the parents of this lady, who said she was born in Redbridge, Hants, in 1826

    She married Solomon Bevis in 1845 in South Stoneham - I do not need any details of her subsequent family.

    However in 1891 she has a middle initial of A, and is with her aunt Elizabeth Pounds born 1811 in Bursledon
    I believe Elizabeth was previously married to Henry Blaker, and was born 1806 as Elizabeth Strugnell to Benjamin and Sarah

    However, I cannot work out how Maria is Elizabeth's niece. Can anyone find her parent.? Thanks very much

    Maria may not have been a blood relation to Elizabeth, perhaps her husband? or one of them. Then again a 'step' something or other can be passed around by saying Niece back then.

    There is a baptismon 19 Sep 1824 at Millbrook, Hampshire of a Maria Amelia Gates STRUGNELL, to a William and Maria.

    On the 1851 census Maria says she was born in Millbrook, Hampshire, which is only just over a mile from Redbridge.

    Elizabeth Strugnell had a brother William baptised 1797.

    The only likely marriage I can find for parents of Maria Amelia Gates STRUGNELL is on 25 Dec 1823 at St Marylebone, Westminster - William STRUGNELL and Ann Maria GATES.
