Vic Pioneer Index 1836-88 no: 4428 Francis French SHERLOCK married to William WIGNELL is also shows Frances as having her mother Mary Ann's maiden name FRENCH as her own middle given name, this would appear to be the first document that has been discovered to date showing Frances as having a second given name?, we know FRENCH was Mary Ann's maiden name so it's would not be hard to see how records may have been incorrectly entered or transcribed but for the fact that the NSW registration also show a second name even if only "F'" not "French" ?, perhaps because of space restrictions ?. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
