Hi All
Could you please help with this mystery of the said Henry Lane he I haven't a clue where he was born,maybe Ireland, as one of you suggested was 'married' to Honora Fitzgerald who you found out through the census was born in Limerick no joy there either,.she went on to marry John Burgess in 1860. I found out that he was made a police constable on the 24th March 1850 warrant no.28518 and was recommended by John Burgess (I think this is Honora's 2nd Husband) and a Mr Fitzgerald couldn't read initial. but he resigned on 12 March 1851. I have found 2 possible deaths for Henry 1857 and 1859. Do you have any suggestions on how I can find out more about him. Many Thanks always Bill

Have you found him in any of the censuses?
Have helpers already posted information about him on a previous thread?
If so, to save duplicating information, could you either link us to that thread, or delete this request and retitle your previous thread stating more help wanted?
