Perhaps a young lady who was looking after Richard Brunton, the youngest brother of Merry's wife (see next day's entry, Richard enfant), who would have been about 5 years old (see Exeter Flying Post 20.8.1846 and Ipswich Journal 15.8.1846). Perhaps related to Robert Henry Franklin (Highfill, Burnim & Langhans) 1769-1802 manager of a theatre company operating in the East Midlands will PCC 1802
