Hi

I am having difficulty in tracing Sabina as above I am really not sure if there are two families very similar, my Sabina was born in London but this seems to vary with different records, on one she is Sabina then Salina same with Hewett and Hewitt. Could there be two families with same parents names and occupations? with a different spelling for Sabina, once married I can trace her quite well it is her early life that is an anomaly. Any sugestion would be appreciated. Thankyou :-(

When was she born?
Is Hewitt her maiden name?
Did she marry in London? If so, when?

Hi

Sorry not sure how much info to put in request and thanks very much for marriage details Andy.
Sabina was born in 1870 St Saviour Southwark as Sabina Hewett
On the 1871 Census,she is Sabina Hewitt born St Saviour Southwark but they have a 14 year old Julia Dean listed as a servant not sure if they would have been rich enough for this.
Then on 1881Census with right parents but born Bromley Middlesex and listed as Salina Hewett.
Could not find them on 1891 Census
She was married on 1901 listed as Selina.
Hope this is more helpful.

Hi

Thanks for that Andy I think looking at the Census it is the same family just a mispelling of her name so hopefully am going down the right line. Will send off for Birth and Marriage certs.

Thanks Jennifer
