So, father = James & mother = Mary

brothers = John & Harry and sister = Elizabeth

Large variation in age at different times. Death in Victoria:

Surname: ADLEM
Given Names: Harriet
Event: D
Father: SHIRLEY James
Mother: Mary
Age: 35
Birth Place: MAID
Year: 1862
Reg Number: 7092

I presume that is Maidenhead so I'm puzzled by Native Place = Burley

I'm having no luck finding anything on this family FS or FreeREG.
