About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:
"Amelia Jane was baptised on May 22, 1842 in St Nicholas, Compton, Surrey. She had been born in the hamlet of Binscombe to Henry and Jane Chandler. In the 1851 census return the family can be found living at Hookley Lane in the village of Compton. Henry was listed as a gamekeeper.
In the 1861 census Amelia Jane can be found as a nursemaid at the Sun Inn and Brewery at Bridge Street in the historic market town of Godalming. The inn and brewery were owned by a widow, Emma Smeed, and it is probable that Amelia Jane cared for her employer’s four-year-old daughter Alice."
