    Default Name - Louisa Barnett.

    Hi
    I am trying to find my cousin's birth or baptism date. All I have is an approximate date of 1835/6 and a location of (North) Mundham, Sussex. I am going by the 1841 and 1851 census.
    I have her parents as Charles Barnett and Hannah Fleet.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you
    Richard

    FamilySearch have a Louisa Barnett baptised 15 May 1836 St Stephen's, North Mundham. Parents James and Louisa.
    Confirmed on FreeREG, where it adds that the 'person abode' is Drayton.

    Don't forget that no family relationships are specified in the 1841 census.

    Images of the BTs for North Mindham are availble to view on familysearch - you will need to register first but it's free.

    The only Louisa I can find is the one mentioned in the previous post. The only child I can find for Charles and Hannah is Jane baptised 18 May 1834. I serched from 1832 to 1838.

    If you have Louisa [and parents] in 1851 Census, can you post the reference please?

    So what is the connection to James Cornelius Barnet? Is he and James and Louisa one and the same?

    Thank you all for your help, which is much appreciated.
    My cousin has managed to solve our mystery. Louisa Barnett turns out to be the daughter of a brother of Charles, which we were unaware earlier.
    Mystery is now solved..Thank you all again.
