I think this is my Gt, Gt, Gt Grandfather.
Born in 1817 had 2 sons William D and Robert D.
I have now come to a full stop as there is no record before 1841.
Can anyone help ?

Hello Sally, and welcome to the boards.

I'm sure there is more info to be found but you have to give us some further details.

First of all you say you *think* he's your gt gt gt grandfather - how have you arrived at this? Have you bought certificates (birth, marriage, etc) of your ancestors to 100% confirm the line? Which of his children do you know for definite to be your direct ancestor?

If you're absolutely certain that he's the right person then you need to tell us more, like where was he born, who did he marry, what census have you got him on, and where.

Hi Sally and welcome to the GR message boards.

Can you tell us a little more?

Where did the family live and when were William D and Robert born?

A possible marriage:

London, England, Marriages and Banns, 1754-1921

Name: William Hulett, bachelor - Copperplate printer
Age: Full Age
Spouse Name: Sarah Bryan, spinster
Record Type: Marriage
Event Date: 31 Oct 1842
Parish: Haggerston St Mary
Borough: Hackney
Father Name: George Hulett (late) - Copperplate printer
Register Type: Parish Register

Sarah's father was Thomas Bryan, a warehouseman.

Witnesses: Dennis Gibbon and Joseph Rouse

Bride and groom both stated as living Little Cambridge Street.

BUT - you really need to get one of their children's birth certificates to confirm their mother's maiden name.
