Charlotte Robson/Robinson/Robertson
Note:  I chose to use this information based on the era she was born - people did not always have horses and the villages of Melbourne, Whaddon, and Meldreth are right next to each other so it was all within walking distance.  About the surname - clerks were not always literate and if someone shy said 'Robertson' as their last name, it could feasibly become Robson and Robertson.  I will continue to do more research, but, for now, I think this is the correct person.  If you know any different, share.
Christened 12 Aug 1809 Melbourne, Cambridge, England
