Problem solved! (Well almost)
Eliza was Frances' grandchild from her first marriage to Samuel Castle. Her daughter Kezia Castle married William Henry James Newnham in Q3 1850 (Medway Reg Dist 5/431).
Still some more details to sort out but that seems to be the basic framwork and fits well with the census record. It means that Eliza was John Seager's step grandchild.
I want to check if Frances and John both went to Canada. Can you check from your end?
Good luck and keep in touch!
