Ellen Agnes Bailey

Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:11 pm

I have been trying to locate the birth record of my great grandmother Ellen Agnes Bailey for some time now. The facts I do have is that her father was named William Bridger Bailey, a carpenter, and that she married a man named Frank Newman in 1886 and died in 1934. Her marriage and death certificates both indicate that her year of birth was around 1863. The 1891 census also suggests that she was born in Midhurst, Sussex but I cannot find any birth records from that area that match.

Can anyone help?

Could be her baptism at Midhurst
26 July 1863
parents christian names William Bridge + Frances
parents surname Bailey
abode Midhurst
father a Carpenter

Middle name of William looks like Bridger on the BT

Thanks ianbee the information regarding the parents is a complete match so that narrows down Ellen's (Helen's?) possible birth date considerably. I still haven't found a birth registration on the GRO around that date so may have to check further back in case she was baptised some time after her birth or maybe her parents didn't register at all!
