* The catch is relationship is entered as daughter
however this appears may be an enumator error as
The 1841 census shows Ann and John Messenger aged 30, Codwainer with 3 children, Charlotte 7, Susan 5, Alfred 1 but no Harriet!
It appears the 3 Messenger children have died young, so has Harriet been adopted?
if so then why is her occuption listed as servant?
IGI has a
Harriet Oakes c.04 Oct 1824
St. Martins, Birmingham , Warwick
father George Henry Oakes
mother Elizabet
Probably this child died and name reused
from igi list it appears post 1831 records
 St Martins may be missing.
