Could some kind soul, please look up Sarah Mealing (b.1829) in 1841 census.

Married to William Stevens in 1844.

In 1851 census she gives her p.o.b as Princes Risborough, Bucks.

William Stevens has been the easiest rellie to trace so far. He has not moved hardly at all throughout his whole life. Born, lived and died within a half mile radius.
So I would find it difficult to believe that he went 'on the hunt' too far, to find his wife.

Steve.

Hi Drew,

The Wycombe entry would be the most likely, as it's around 7 miles away from hubby William.

I was just hoping that her p.o.b. was actually Princes Risborough as stated in 1851.

But as usual, that would be too easy wouldn't it.:rolleyes:

Most of the Mealings i've come across are mainly centred on Wycombe.

I have been combing my 1575-1901 Princes Risborough parish records for days,
and there is no trace of any Mealings/Medings/Meadings/Meldings at all.

So might have to look to Wycombe.

Thank you so much.

Steve.:)
