Have you tried looking for her birth?

You haven't given any location info, so no-one can try to look for her in censuses

Unfortunately I'm not seeing a birth for Sarah in Stepney?

michelle

michelle Report 9 Sep 2012 22:28

right. sounds like it could fit so ill have to get certs to confirm. i know most of my grandparents family and on were from london areas. This could turn into a very expensive hobby to find proof.

thanks for the help

i am not sure if she was def but her daughter ( my nan ) was - her name was sarah perry.

Michelle, you can use

Freebmd.org.uk/

to look for children of Perry/ Bennett

it is possible that there are two seperate couples with those surnames as there are lots of children, some born St Georges so you would need to check whicjh ones may be the siblings to your grandmother.

michelle Report 9 Sep 2012 22:32

Like i said it may be certs needed. my uncle did the family tree years back but unfortunately got it all wrong so i am strating from scratch - my def knowledge is my nan was sarah perry and her mother was sarah bennett who def married joseph perry.
