Baptised at St Margaret's church, Lee and lived at Blackheath.

Biography
When Belinda was baptised at St Margaret’s church, Lee on 13th June 1725 she was described as a 'black maid lodging at Blackheath'.

She was not described as 'servant of' or 'belonging to', so she could have been free and living out of the house she was working in or looking for employment.

To be living in Blackheath and not Deptford also means she would have been living in a better area, maybe to be closer to work or because she could afford it.

From the entry in the parish register we cannot tell Belinda’s exact age or place of origin and nothing further is known of her.
