Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to trace
my 2 x great grandmother her maiden name was Mary Louisa Downer and
according to the British Census (from 1881 onwards) she was born in
saint Helena, South africa in 1855, she married Frederick James Stroud
in 1875 in middlesex although I have no idea what bought her to the UK.
I have looked on the british library web site, the LDS and the saint
Helena institute web site and can find no Downers atall,if anyone has
any advice for me it would be warmly appreciated.
