Another Sarah Barnes Durrant born 1874.
Censuses show her father was William Durrant b 1843. 1861 census for Soham has this William age 18, sister Sarah 16 and parents William 52 & Sarah 51. Looks like young William called his daughter after his sister or mother.

Marriage of William Durrant & Sarah Barnes 11 Dec 1834 at Gazeley (Newmarket) fits nicely with their ages in 1861.

Hope this helps

Yep, that's correct.

EDIT: Was hoping you hadn't found another one that I'd overlooked :)

I looked at Eliza Hobbs age 17, b. Exning Suffolk, niece, with the above Durrant family in 1861.

She was bapt. Exning 31.3.1844 d.o. Jabez Hobbs and Mary.

There is a marriage at Exning 1 March 1837, Jabez Hobbs jun. and Mary Barnes (from Suffolk marriage licences). If their daughter was niece to William & Sarah Durrant then Mary & Sarah would be sisters, confirming Sarah's maiden name as Barnes.

Thanks, Elaine.

Yeah I went a bit mad trying to sort out the Barnes, which hopefully I have done...
