1    Original information had name as Mona Alfreda. Alfrida Stroyan Bixley Meen in Parish Register, Alfreda Stroyan Bixley Meen on copy of birth certificate. No father listed on birth certificate. Location Blakenham Magna R.S.D. Parish register describes mother, Caroline Meen as 'Single Woman'. Note that Bixley is an area of Ipswich (to the south east), so was there an Alfred Stroym?! Marriage certificate (photo copy of Alfreda's signature) shows the name as Alfreda Stroym Brixley Meen - but Birth Certificate is accurate, see below.

YES! Christine Blanch (of the Mee/Meen family) found Alfred Stroyan in the 1861 Census, (RG9 / 115 Folio 32 p6) the son of Robert and Jane Stroyan, aged 7 months. Born and living at Bixley, Norfolk!
