The Brent Archive's notes on the F A Wood collection provide:
"1802 Christening of Louisa (daughter of Samuel and Ada Drewry) on 11th August."
Study of the original baptismal record shows that Wood has understandably mis-read a very faint entry that actually says "Sam and Ann" are her parents.
But where did the 'Manley' come from?
The Marriage Allegation is dated the 18th February, 1824, and signed by James Painter.
The marriage record shows that her father or brother, Sam, and sister, Maria, were witnesses.
The marriage is recorded in Pallots:
James Painter is mentioned as a good friend in her brother William Tillotson's will.
James Painter is one of the witnesses to the marriage of Louisa's sister, Maria Drewry to Peter Painter in 1835.
The marriage of Louisa and James is reported in the 'New Monthly Magazine' and other journals.
