Death/Burial of Elizabeth Hobden between 1827 and 1842 in Brighton

by Alan Hobden 20 July 2009

Can anyone help please? I am looking for the death/burial of my ancestor Elizabeth Hobden (nee Piper) who married Robert HOBDEN in St Nicholas, Brighton on 2 November 1815. Their last child, Robert, was born on 15 April 1827 in Brighton and baptised there on 15 July 1827.
Elizabeth’s husband Robert re-married on 29 January 1842 at St Nicholas, Brighton to Mary Ann Frances BYNER. A newspaper reference states Robert had been widowed for some time, but I can’t find Elizabeth’s death or burial. Any ideas please?
