You mention a probable baptism for George's mother in Meshaw in 1803, parents James and Elizabeth. I have not checked that, however a James Boundy was buried in Meshaw 5 Sep 1804. FMP has a record of the marriage of Richard Ediford, widower, to Elizabeth Boundy, widow, 9 July 1809 in Meshaw. It seems possible that Susan never knew her birth father but may have grown up alongside half siblings bearing the Ediford name and possibly used her stepfather's name herself. That might account for some confusion over her name before marriage.
