I have looked several times and the only conclusion I have is that this one married and died between 1851 and 1861....but it's always good to have a second pair of eyes :)

Georgiana Lock Baptised 1822 in Ridge, Hertfordshire
1851 HO107; Piece: 1701; Folio: 69; Page: 6 (Georgina)

I can't get ancestry to load on this laptop at the moment, so where was she in 1851, please?

I can't find her either.:(:(

Tried all ways to search, but no luck.

If she is Georgiana Locke baptised 31 Mar 1822 at Ridge, parents Thomas and Elizabeth, then there is a marriage on Family Search 4 Dec 1853 at Marylebone, London, Georgiana Lock to Robert White, and it gives her father's name as Thomas.

Then Family Search has some baptisms:

Christine (or Christian) Jane White, born 31 Jul 1854, baptised 20 Aug 1854, St Peter, Pancras, London
Robert Thomas White born 29 Aug 1856, baptised 23 Nov 1856, same church.

And then there are some Scottish ones at Saint Monance, Fife:
William White born 27 Jan 1859 (mother's surname given as Lacke)
Annabella Foggo White born 5 Apr 1861
Mary Torrens Anstruther White born 25 Oct 1863
Elizabeth White born 5 Dec 1865
Andrew Hireson White born 11 Feb 1868.
(The mother's surname is given as Locke for all of these except William)

There is a Georgina and Robert White family in Scotland.

Children Christian Robert William and Infant

Georgina born England Robert born Scotland

Does this look like them???

It seems pretty likely, but it's a shame it doesn't give her exact birthplace! I suppose if Jeanette gets the marriage certificate it will give Thomas's occupation and the witnesses' names which should help decide if it's the right Georgiana.

Or do the children's names match with names from your Locke family, Jeanette?

Oh wait, I just realised - Jeanette, if Georgiana died in Scotland then her death registration will be on Scotland's People and should give the full names of both her parents so you can check that way.

Kate, Wendy, Tricia....thank you so much. That's brilliant :D

I did have Robert White as a possible spouse from the GRO index so this looks pretty much like the right one

Thanks again :)

Oh Excellent! I'll go and take a look. You've given me something to work on for this afternoon :)

Edit: the names Thomas, Mary and Elizabeth are all family names but they are rather common lol
