All family born Tring, but no sign of Georgina - if this is the right family I wonder if she could be with grandparents and recorded under their name? Not seeing a marriage for Thomas Sears to a Lydia to check her maiden name though.

This Thomas died in 1889 - from probate register:

18/4/1889, the will of Thomas Sears, late of Roxeth Harrow..died 13/3/1889 at Roxeth proved by Lydia Sears of 2 Grange Terrace, his widow. Effects £133 15s

Hazel, if you are trying to find descendents of this family, you need to look for matches by using the search box above. It's very unlikely anyone related will see your query so you need to search them out!
