I have just been trying to look for your Sarah. Is it not possible that she may have got married earlier? In 1875 there is a possible marriage on freeBMD, Wimborne, Dorset 5a 469
Mary Anne Hiscock
William Robert James
In 1881 there is a family in Wimborne that could fit. Sarah was a dressmaker in 1871.
William R James, 25, Bricklayer
Sarah, 26, Dressmaker
Alfred ?, son, 5
Alice H, son, 3
Charles Kimber, lodger, 41

I looked on Ancestry found birth for Sarah Parsons Wimborne 1858 Sept Quarter, 5a 260, also looked on 1881 census, she must have married by then.
I am assuming you don't know her married name.
The only way you can find out if this is the birth record for your Sarah is by ordering the birth cert.
You would have to search ancestry for possible marriages between 1871 and 1881.

I would assume that by the time the 1871 came around, Sarah now aged about 26 would have been married.
Using the search facility on ancestry, I asked it for any Sarah, born in Wimbourne, Dorset who was aged about 26.
It came back with just 4 people who met all the above criteria and was also married.
Sarah Habgood abt 1858 Wimborne, Dorset, England Wife Wimborne Broomhill, Wimborne, Dorset, England
Sarah Newman abt 1858 Wimborne, Dorset, England Wife 16 Hyde St, Winchester, Hampshire, England
Sarah Stickland abt 1857 Wimborne, Dorset, England Wife St Katherines Ter, Wimborne Minster, Dorset, England
Sarah I. Trivett abt 1858 Wimborne, Dorset, England Wife Branksome Wood ford Lodge, Holdenhurst, Hampshire, England

Hi I also looked on ancestry for 1881 census,
Assuming Sarah married William R James in 1875, Wimborne Dorset, which I did find a marriage for, I found the same people in the 1881 census
Alfred P James (son) birthplace bournemouth abt 1876
Alice H James (daughter) birthplace furzehill Wimborne Dorset
Sarah James (Wife) born about 1855
William R James (head) born about 1856
Charles Kimber (lodger) born about 1840 long critchell dorset.
I hope any of this is helpful to you

:D Thankyou all.
I will have to order the certificate for the marriage in 1875, as this is the one that looks possible. I must have missed this marriage when searching earlier as I only saw the 1890 and 1893 marriages but could not find matches for either of those on the census' either, hence my request for help.
See what a different set of eyes, or sets in this instance, can do.
|woohoo| Well done.
