Sarah Harding Oliver
I have been researching the Oliver family, starting with Sarah who appears to have been born in Chew in 1832. According to the record of her marriage to Edward Harse in June 1862 her father was named Henry Oliver. I have found a Henry Oliver aged 67 with wife Sarah H aged 55 in the 1851 census and am wondering if these are her parents. I would like to find details of her baptism in the hope that parents details are noted. Thanks.
