SHURY, MARTHA 31
GRO Reference: 1846 J Quarter in ABINGDON UNION Volume 06 Page 87

SHURY, MARTHA 77
GRO Reference: 1863 J Quarter in COOKHAM Volume 02C Page 251

SHUREY, MARTHA 80

They don't fit.

I can find the following baptisms which all took place in Hurley, parents James and Martha

John 1 February 1818
Elizabeth 2 June 1820
Richard 9 December 1821
Ann 27 July 1823
Harriet 21 March 1825
Henry 13 May 1827
Thomas 13 February 1831
Esther 21 August 1836

There are two more, William baptised 9 October 1814 and Mary baptised 18 February 1816. These two were baptised in Hampstead Norreys and this fits with the marriage, also in Hampstead Norreys, of James Shorey to Martha Green on 18 April 1814
 
Thanks emeltee.

That's handy. Not often you can find siblings and parents of convicts.
