anyone researching Hilliar Family

Hi Is there anyone out there researching the Hilliar family? I have found my friend's gt grandmother ELEANOR ANN HILLIAR, she was born 1854 in Newington, Surrey. No father named. I can trace neither her or her mother on 1861 and 1871 census, the first time I find her is her marriage to George Conington in 1873. Any help would be great.
Looks like Eleanor and George moved to Lincolnshire where Eleanor died in 1896. Have you got her marriage cert. to see if there are any clue's?

If we had the birth mother's full name we could check for marriages and census and might have more luck finding them in 1861 and 1871. If Eleanor's mother married Eleanor could be under her step father's name on the census.
I checked all the Hilliar's living in that area and marriages but drew a blank. Also checked deaths incase mother died at childbirth. Can't find Eleanor and George on 1881.
Hi to everyone who has been trying to help me find info about
Eleanor Ann Hilliar. I now have her birth cert and she was born 13/6/1854 St Mary Newington, Surrey. No father on the birth cert but names her mother as Mary Ann Hilliar. I have found a Mary A Hilliar b 1834 Surrey , father Henry, mother, Sarah on 1841 and 1851 census, she possibly married Henry White in 1854. I can still find no records at all of Eleanor A Hilliar, prior to her marriage to George Connington. Where do I go next??
