The 1841 census was taken on the 6th June 1841 Val, so the child would have been born 6 months before that, earliest 6th December 1840.

Yes but remember it wasn't law that babies had to be registered until I think 1873 so you may not find one, you are more likely to find a baptism as few went un-baptised.

Could very possibly be in either Val. Is there anything on the IGI to give you a clue or is it a very common name?

Val, are they the people living in Staines in 1841? There is a birth reg is Staines district - could they have got a bit fanciful about Eliza's place of birth by the following census?

If that's not them, which one is she?

No, I don't really think so as I can't see a birth reg for William Wallis who was b St Lukes in 1850ish either. They may have been one of those annoying families who didn't bother.
