PHEBE (Burgin) but what's her Maiden Name

#1
I have a Phebe married to George Burgin in the area of St Pancras (Somers Town) probably around 1852 but cannot find the marriage! So we don't have her surname.
A daughter (also Phebe) was born 09 May 1853 and Baptized 10 May 1853 at Bloomsbury St George (London). Her Baptism was when she was a day old - perhaps she was not expected to live (?) - she does not show up on any Census records, but I don't find a death either!
A son, George William or William George Burgin, (depending on the source - G W on the Baptismal Record but W G on his Birth Certificate), was born 07 Oct 1855 at 78 Chalton Street, Somers Town (St Pancras) and Baptized on 27 Oct 1855 at St Pancras Old Church. I purchased a copy of the Birth Certificate for "William George Burgin" thinking I would find his mother's maiden name on it - well, it is there but, so far, has defeated the efforts of many to decipher it! It starts with an 'R' but then what?
Would love to get an answer to this puzzle!
