Classification: Birth
Surnames: Garley
In 1999 I checked the Little Harrowden Birth Register 1813-1855 for my own great great grandmother, Rebecca Garley, baptised 7.7.1833. Hephzibah Garlies (sic) is listed as baptised 12.10.1823. Parents: John & Elizabeth Garley of Little Harrowden. John's occupation is 'labourer'. Hephzibah is probably a cousin of my Rebecca. Other children born to John & Elizabeth were:
- Louisa Garley, Baptised 4.4.1817
- Thomas Garley, Baptised 24.1.1819
- Eliza Garley, Baptised 12.8.1821
- Caroline Garlies, Baptised 31.12.1825
- James Wingrove Garlies, Baptised 23.9.1827
- Harriet Garlies, Baptised 23.12.1831.

In the Orlingbury Marriages Register 1813-1837 I also found:
"John Garley of this parish, bachelor, and Elizabeth Wingrove of this parish, spinster, were married in this church by banns with consent of parents this 26th day of September in the year 1814 by me J.Whitehorne, Rector. This marriage was solemnised between us John Garley (signed). This is the mark of Elizabeth Wingrove. In the presence of Robert Langley and Joseph Langley."

I have not looked at the 1841 census for LH myself. It's odd that you only found Rebecca and Caroline as they appear to be cousins and would have been just 8 and 16 respectively, unless John and Elizabeth had another daughter called Rebecca who was baptised elsewhere.

Anyway, hope the above fills in this gap for you.
