The only female Woodbridge birth that fits the timescale is Sophia, born Dec 1870 Dec Q , Hemel Hempstead.

Could Sophia's pet name have been Jane ? :confused:

How old is she in 1871 census?

This would appear to be a likely baptism from FamilySearch.org - Family History and Genealogy Records (http://www.familysearch.org:)

Christening: 25 FEB 1872 Flaunden, Hertford, England
Extracted birth or christening record for locality listed in the record. The source records are usually arranged chronologically by the birth or christening date.
Source Information: Batch No.: P016621

Flaunden is a few miles south of Bovingdon on the map.

Lol Nell !!

I can't find a marriage for a Sophia though, maybe she died before 1891?

In 1891 Census there is a Jane Woodridge, b 1871 as a servant in Willwsden, but her bp is given as Hamden.
RG12; Piece: 1045; Folio 127; Page 4

There is also a Jane Wooldridge, b 1870, Hampshire as a servant

RG12; Piece: 617; Folio 35; Page 12

That is as near as I can get. Sorry.

Can't see a likely death or marriage for either Jane or Sophia Woodbridge.

Bovindon and Flaunden sort of collide , down the back of no-where - in fact where they lived was nearer flaunden, and dad was born there so bound to be.

would be registered hemel hempstead

I think I found her in 1901, her place of birth is shown as Flauntney Bucks, but Flaunden is very close to Bucks border.

Class: RG13; Piece: 125; Folio: 23; Page: 37.
