Notes for Susanna Frances THURLOW:

Not completely sure about Susannah. There was a Susannah Frances Thurlow who was baptised at St Marylebone, Westminster, London on 23 Nov 1805. She was born on 12 Mar 1806 to John and Susannah. It's an unusual combinations of name so I wonder if perhaps this relates to our Susannah.

Susanna is assumed to have died in February 1856 aged 51 years. The Burial Record lists the death as "Susan", hence the conjecture.

The Parish Register transcript shows that Richard died in March 1847 aged 18 years. I suspect this should have been transcribed as "8 years". There is no other Richard that this entry could relate to.
