mrs Gurney 1.1.1800 at O Fancourt's

Perhaps the wife of John Gurney DNB 1768-1845 who was Maria daughter of William Hawes DNB 1736-1808. They were married at St Botolph without Bishopsgate on 11.12.1797, her first child was born 27.4.1799 and her second 16.8.1800. Most of the other Gurney wives would more likely have been in Norfolk. It could have been her mother-in-law Rebecca (nee Brodie) 1747-1814, but given the context of mrs Fancourt's the younger wife seems more likely. See Hawes for the visit of the miss Hawes' to Thelwall's in 1795, which suggests an adventurous spirit
