Think you're right Peter.

That said UNLESS FamilySearch site has has a major breakdown while using it, which seems unlikely as was working fine for me a few minutes ago, regardless of what permutations of Miss WARDS name I search for, I'm struggling to find any refererence of her in our general area at all, with all records seemingly pointing to America or London !!!

Searching FreeBMD for ALL Ward births 1886-1890, these are the ONLY likely records I can find within our West Dean aka "Westbury on Severn" search area;

Surname Given Name District Volume Page Transcriber
Births Jun 1889
Ward Emily Elizabeth Monmouth 11a 15 spacemonkey


Surname Given Name District Volume Page Transcriber
Births Sep 1889
Ward Ellen Monmouth 11a 22 YPH

It's highly likely that a Birth in mid December, as in this case, wouldn't be registered until the New Year, we've seen many instances of this happening. Less likely to leave it until the July/Aug/September Quarter tho.


GlosBMD adds these details;
