Notes for Maria Blomfield
Her birth year of 1814 (or 1813) is consistently reported in all censuses, as is the birth place of Dunton, Bucks where her father was rector from 1811 to 1817, when he was appointed chaplain to the bishop of London.

Then I found this transcription of the baptism register for St Martin’s church, Dunton:

24 Mar 1814 Maria daughter of Charles James & Anna Maria BLOMFIELD of Dunton, Clerk, Rector of Dunton

In 1881 she was a widow in the census:

There are far too many Maria Brown deaths on FreeBMD to begin to guess her death date.

2009: She was in the 1881 census as a widow but not in 1891, so a search for those ten years for her death gives:

So this looks very much as if it is her death:
