NOTES: Maggie Harvery has William's birth date as 1826. Louise Spears has the christening (assumption because place noted is a church) on 29/1/1825. Locations are slightly different but not close enough to be in the neighbourhood. Maggie has the birth place to be Broadwater, Shephall whilst Louise has the christening in Bethnal Green, London.

Note on Husband: William John AXTELL (2)

Need to sort out baptism. AFO UK has a William John Axtell bap 26/2/1826 at St Matthew, whilst I already have a William John Axtell bap 29/1/1826 in St Matthew also. This William John is born in Hertfordshire, so I can't see how he was baptised in Bethnal Green. Could be a date/place mismatch by some other researcher. Needs checking. [Jon Axtell]13
