Notes for Elizabeth BEASLEY:

Also known as: Bessie

I suspect it's this Elizabeth Beasley we see being Christened at Banbury on 11 September 1821. Adderbury is a small village about 3 miles to the south of Banbury. Her parents were identified as Richard and Martha Beasley.

Martha my have been Martha Miller before marriage, if so, they married on 18 May 1818 in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

Notes for Ellen KNIBBS:

The newspaper article covering the wedding of Ellen's sister Emma, refered to Emma as George Edwin Clarek Knibbs's only daughter, so presumably Ellen had died beforehand.
