Hi... I'm just starting to research my family tree and have discovered my great grandmother's name is Mary Elizabeth Paulin (or Pauling or Pauling-Smith depending where you look)... she was born in Paddington London in about 1862. I have ordered her birth certificate... maybe it is a tenous link but Paulin was not a very common name.
She is my favourite relative... she seemed to be a very "bad" woman quoting the langauge of the times... her husband spent most of his life in a variety of lunatic asylums and she had lots of children with lots of men! Makes this research very interesting!
