Finding Charlotte Doughty Treseder's christening record in Westminster, London, England

In November of 2013, I finally found a christening record for Charlotte Doughty Treseder in St. Margaret, Westminster, Middlesex, England. Her father's name is Paul Doughty and her mother's name is Mary. I'm pretty sure this is the correct record for her. Her marriage bond and allegation was signed by Paul Doughty. Based on his burial record, he would have been in his fifties when Charlotte was born. This could have been a second marriage for him, however. There were no other children of Paul and Mary found in St. Margaret, Westminster.

I didn't know if I would ever find this record for Charlotte. I have been searching for Paul Doughty who I thought may be her father or a grandfather for several years. I've never been able to find his military record which I hoped would give his place of birth. Now, on to find a marriage for Paul Doughty and Mary and their other children.
