Gins ............. Not a lot although there is a Humphry Walford b.1831, Wickham Essex on the LDS site

Alfred and Humphrey appear on 1841 census.

Cannot connect William

Thanks very much Gins.

I have the marriage reference of one of William's daughters so I think I need to send for a certificate to try and clarify her fathers name.

This could be daughter Ada's marriage. She's the only child I've found so far that gives her father a middle name. Frances, Elizabeth, Celia and John all give their father as just William Walford.

Thank you to ALL again.

That marriage of Ada that Christina found looks promising. It is the first time that William and Humphrey have actually appeared together.
