First name is correct. Surname, Brayley, was obtained from
Dax Eric Clayton Lloyd, (great-grandson of Jessie Bertha Oliver b.1876), confirms this surname is correct.

Brian Oliver of (b.1950) to do more work confirming dates.

Sarah Ferguson (nee Churton) gives date of birth as 9 January 1774. Sarah agrees with date of death. of 1st February 1860.

Copy of death certificate from Dax Eric Clayton Lloyd (great-grandson of Jessie Bertha Oliver b.1876) in October 2013 shows died of “Old Age Atrophy Certified.” [Atrophy is partial or complete wasting away of a part of the body]. Date of death confirmed as 1 Feb 1860. However, age at death is shown as 84 years which place year of birth at 1776 if she had a birthday in January? Looking at age of census above - year of birth more likely to have been 1777? I will use this year of 1777.

Date of birth of 9 Jan 1774 in Holsworth, Devon, England as per Amy Utting’s family tree advised by email on 4 October 2018. Reference (Login required).
This date agrees with Sarah Ferguson (nee Churton). I will change the date to this from 1777. Amy Utting is the x3 great granddaughter of Francis Oliver b 1840.
