In the 1841 census No. 10 Webber Row, London Road, St George the Martyr, Surrey.
Thomas Thompson 20, clerk, born in county.
Georgiana Thompson, age 25, born in county.
At the same address are Mary and Katherine Ferris, ages 47 and 9, and William and Margarette Asbury ages 36 and 35. [This address seems to be close to Waterloo Station]

From Lisa de Garston’s Family Tree
Died February 8 1843, Lying-In Hospital, York Road Lambeth, died of puerperal fever - no surviving child. [The no surviving child seems to contradict her son’s burial in July] [York Road passes by Waterloo Station]

In the January to March 1843 death index Georgiana Thompson, Lambeth, London, volume 4, page 227.

Parish records St. Mary Magdalen, Bermondsey, Southwark, Surrey
February 12, 1843 burial Georgiana Thompson, age 31. Performed by Jno. E. Gibson.

Georgiana was not mentioned in the will of Hannah Danby’s in December of 1853 yet her sister Evelina was mentioned. It would seem to be a reasonable conclusion Georgiana must have died prior to that date.

It seems the probable timeline for this family is as follows, short and tragic.
June 18, 1840 married
June 21, 1841 son Thomas William Thompson is born
November, 1842 son Thomas William Thompson dies
February 1843 mother Georgiana dies at about the same time she gives birth to a second son Thomas Markham Thompson
July 1843 son Thomas Markham Thompson dies
Notes for Eliza (Spouse 2)
Second wife.
Name, birth year and marriage date from The Danbys by Selby Whittingham.
