    Following on from Almach's post, I came across someone in an earlier search - and although I can't remember for the life of me why I was looking at her, her name stuck with me - Kitty Catt.

    Apologies for not replying. I somehow completely missed these last two responses.

    I don't see any connection with those, but thanks for the info. Emily's father is William, and she was Bevis when married then Williams until her death.

    You mention Hampshire, and there was some leads there that had some potential.

    At the moment the strongest lead for me is what jomot1 dug up. A William Beavis (not concerned by the spelling difference as it seems to shift between Bevis, Beavis and Beevis at will). Same occupation. And started working in Islington two years before her birth. It's an assumption, but that may be him.

    If the birth wasn't registered then I'll never know her mother, and the father will just be an assumption.

    The Clarence middle name remains a mystery, no sign of that though on a William.
