hello again richard, I have some interesting information for you re isabella and her parents? i have a copy of the birth certificate of isabella powley born 17/08/1845. in narburgh.the fathers name is not shown on the certificate neither is isabellas name i can only presume that she wasn't named until frances married edmund allensby. but i cannot confirm if edmund was in fact the natural father of isabella.i have a copy of isabellas marriage certificate she married john william starr on 15/09/1864 in ely,cambridgeshire. yours jimmyb.
