Lambeth St John the Evangelist, Surrey on 28 Mar 1847

Charles and Amelia Baker, it would appear, had six children:

  6. Ellen Rosina Baker b. 1866 S Quarter in SAINT GEORGE IN THE EAST Volume 01C Page 398. Registered as Ellen Susannah, the mother's maiden name is also shown as Young. Always known as Ellen Rosina, it appears the registration was listed or transcribed incorrectly.
