Victorian cross stitch task

Hello all,
Many years ago I purchased a vitorian cross stitch sampler, it was in red so I am assuming it may have been completed in a workhouse. I was told once that workhouses only had the one colour cotton ?.
There is a childs name and age and a year on the sampler, I have tried on various occations ttried to see if I can find this little girl.

Her name on the cross stitch is Eliza Bullock Dalby, aged 8 1842.
I can find Eliza dalby's and Eliza Bullock's but no Eliza Bullock Dalby's.
The cross stitch was obtained at either Sleaford or Stamford Lincolnshire, I know this doesnt say the little girl lived in Lincolnshire.
Any one fancy a go at trying to find this little girl, just thought it could be a bit of intresting fun. :confused:
