In 1861 and 1871 she was at home with her parents aged 2 and 12.
She married Walter Boud who was a groom, in the September quarter 1878, in the Greenwich district (1d 1224).
In 1881 she was married (a groom's wife) and living at Hildersham with her parents, aged 22. Also in the household were Bernard Boud aged 2 and Percy Carter Boud aged 10 months, both born at Hildersham, grandchildren of James, so presumably children of Selina.
A search of the free BMD site gave a marriage for Selina Bond and Samuel Coulson Weedon in the December quarter 1894 in the Paddington district (1a 56).
