A friend's ancestor, Ellen Eliza Mitchell, was shown in a London Census as having been born c1811 in Selinhay, Dorset.
Does anyone know where it is or was, or what it could have been a misheard or spelled version of?

There is a Linhay farm in Corscombe, Dorchester; maybe that could be it.
Haven't heard of Selinhay at all.
