Eliza, now a widow, was recorded in the 1901 census, boarding at a different address in Lewisham, working on her own account as a needlewoman. That fits in very well with the 18 year-old Augustus Mordaunt (abt. ) found guilty of theft at the Old Bailey in 1839 - sentenced to three months confinement. There are some transcription errors in the Old Bailey webpage - particularly that he had been promised "more wages", not "meter wages." Was he also the August Mordaunt transcribed on a If so, he made up for it; an Augustus Mordaunt fought with the 61st Regiment of Foot, later the South Gloucestershires, in the battle of Chillianwalla in the second Sikh War on 13th January 1849, though he apparently missed the campaign's final battle, Goojerat, on 21st February 1849.Her date fits in with a 28 year old Mary Mordaunt, a dressmaker(? ) The next three children were baptised together at St Mary, Lambeth, on 2nd February, 1821.
