Looks like I might be, as Henry is still in Brighton in 1851, with hs widowed mother, Caroline. He is recorded as an undergraduate of Oxford Uni, so .... a fat red herring, most likely!!

Back to the drawing board......

He was said to be nephew of Octavius Lawes Woodthorpe Bousfield who was a surveyor in NZ, and who was a son of Rebecca Bousfield, who appears to be the same person that Clara is a visitor with in 1861.
My brain aches reading that!

I see Octavius was aged 10 in 1841, and we know his 'nephew', Philip Cuthbert Anderson was born in 1848. Rebecca was born in the v late 1790s, so she may have had children from perhaps 1820 or a little before. If a sibling of Octavius was a parent of Philip then how did they come by the surname either Anderson or Cuthbert? *headache*

I still have not found baby Clara in 1851, nor the address that was given at the 1851 baptism.

She is registered in the April - June Qtr so possibly not born in time!

Edit to say: The address on the baptism is just around the corner from where I am now, needless to say the buildings/cottages do not exist now but there was a church that could now be the Lithuanian Church now. It is a bit of a hotchpotch of design studios and old businesses now but was pretty derelict when I was a child. It is on the edge of the Regents Canal and the old gas works which they are now completely rebuilding by using the gas works in the new buildings.

"and the Oval, with 36 cottages and a chapel, on the eastern boundary by 1836. (fn. 30) Much of the estate, however, was occupied by a fishpond until the mid 19th century."

This is 12 Oval Cottages (the address from the baptisms) in 1851. Elizabeth Garrett - I think she was mentioned in the original post.

Edit - ah, one of your links which didn't work was to the same census entry! Cuthbert is there.

Her baptism record says that she was born in March.

Makes me think of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson!

I have to go out now, so hopefully this will be solved by the time I return
