familysearch has the following marriage

William Penfold/Sarah Marchant 4 October 1795 London.

Not very informative as to exactly where in London but it's a start.

Thanks Emeltee.

So William with no baptism found so far may not be the eldest.

Thanks Emeltee.

Ann Wren born abt 1799 Tooting.

I think the Wren connection is to Penfold.

Can't see a marriage of a William Wren to a Mary Penfold,

Thanks Emeltee.

Looks like some 1790 - 1799 Tooting baptisms are missing.

Sarah nee Marchant shows in census as born Streatham or Mitcham.

With Ann nee Wren showing Tooting in Census I thought Mary Penfold.

There is a baptism in Streatham for a Sarah Marchant 1771 parents John and Margaret. They also baptised two sons in Streatham with surname Merchant - John 1774 and James 1777.

There is a baptism for a Mary Marchant, daughter of John and Margaret in Dorking 1770. However I have found Mary Wren on the 1851 Census and she gives pob as Upper Tooting so may not be the right Mary even though dob is about right.

fs catalogue has images for Tooting Graveney. They are typrd transcriptions only but I have found the following

Sarah daughter of William and Sarah Penfold born 4 August 1796 bapt. 28 August 1796
William son of William and Sarah Penfold born 2 March 1799 bapt. 24 March 1799

No Penfold entries before 1796.

A couple of trees point to this...

Elizabeth Smith
Christening Date: 5 May 1797
Place: Chertsey, Surrey, England
Parents = Thomas Smith & Elizabeth Smith

The censuses have PoB as Chertsey and age is consistently close.. Would hold out for something to corroborate it :rolleyes:

The image has nothing new..
