Emily Stevens (Mth Mdn Name Cross) born 1875 Essex

Christopher Report 10 Jul 2019 13:00

I am trying to find the birth record of an Emily Stevens born in Essex, possibly Romford in 1875 with a mother's maiden name of Cross with no success.I have searched the 1891 Census to find her living with Father and siblings at Hardwick Street Barking as a 16yr old daughter of William James Stevens (widower) born 1850.
The closest that I've come to finding it is a record for an Emily Emma Stevens born 1875 at Romford with a Mother's Maiden Name of Sexton. When I originally looked for the record about a year ago the Mother's Maiden Name was left blank, so I suppose that I'm asking is this update a correct entry or could it be a typo.
I do hope someone can help
regards
Chris

A little odd:- it has been known for sex to be unsure at birth? Registration fits with birth date on baptism

Birth:
