Musuru
"Madam Musuru, wife of the Turkish Ambassador was taken ill at the Indian House Ball, given to the Sultan, on Friday July 19th 1867, and died quickly."
This was found by the Norfolk transcribers for FreeREG. It was handwritten on a cutting from "THE RECORD" newspaper, stuck to the cover of the Fincham register of burials 1863-1931. The cutting is a philosophical paragraph about The tragic side of life, perhaps chosen for its suitability for a burial register. It is not known what the Musuru connection is with Fincham.
