There is a high possibility that they are on the missing parishes: The following parishes and hamlets are missing from these piece numbers. Some of these parishes and hamlets represent the entirety of the piece, while others are just portions of a piece. Aythorp-Roothing Bardfield-Saling Barnston Broxted Chickney Easton Lodge Felstead Great Bardfield Great Canfield Great Dunmow Great Easton *** Hatfield-Broad-Oak or Hatfield Regis High Easter High Roothing Leaden-Roothing Lindsell Little Bardfield Little Canfield Little Easton Little Dunmow Margaret Roothing Morrell-Roothing Stebbing Takeley Thaxted Tilty White Roothing I noticed most of Dunmow (which Hatfield comes under) was missing.

(just came across this relating to 1851 on google, from a former GR query)

HI Jax, do you think James could be the son of Jacob and Sarah, they were married 16 June 1848. Oops didn't see the above reply's

jax

jax Report 21 Sep 2011 15:07

The 1851 census says he is the son of Thomas and Francis

There are no other James Sapsford's born around that time

Thank you all so much, I find the Sapsford side very confusing as so many came from the same area with the same names.

Can someone Just check that I have this correct so far

William Sapsford b.1856/57 Hatfield Heath fathers name Jacob Sapsford (on marriage cert to Ann Levett)
Could not find a William Sapsford b.1856/57 with the father as Jacob only William Sapsford b.1853 (thinking he may have lied about his age as on the marriage cert he states just "full age")
Jacob was deceased at the time of marriage in 1880
