Sophia Ellen Hooper born abt 1841 in Hackney parents were: James Hooper and Elizabeth Nightingale born abt 1811 in Bethnal Green. Who were Elizabeth's parents ? I think James Hooper parents were: Robert Hooper and Mary but don't know her maiden surname ?

That's a bit strange Susan, I also have a Mary Ann Nightingall who married a Robert Legge in my family tree. I think her parents were: Thomas Nightingall and Hannah Houndle.

As the ages were rounded up on the 1841 census to the nearest 5 years this may be your answer but I could be definate.
