Thankyou so much for all your time spent,

I'm pretty sure Frances Chantler is Frances Clout, Eliza's sister and Mary Annie's maternal aunt.

The forename, age and birthplace of both women is the same.

What I can't work out is what happened to Frances/Fanny between census 1851 when she was a single servant, and 1871 when she was with John Chantler, other than the likely marriage to Henry Walter Wise.

I can't find Frances under any identity in census 1861.
