Thinking perhaps Witness One: James Russell is Richard's brother. From previous research I know James Russell married Eleanor Tomes 24th December 1810 at Newnham.

There's also Elizabeth born c 1813 Floore, Northants....so it could be that Samuel being the eldest son and Elizabeth being the eldest daughter looked after Anne and James the youngest children in the 1841 census?

Joy not sure what you mean. The 1841 census has already been posted.

Samuel is down as an Ag. Lab and no occupation for the others.

Joy *The Carlos Cutie of Ilson* Report 30 Dec 2012 22:28

1851 Census onwards for Samuel and the rest of his siblings, Mel. Think I have him and James in 1881. Haven't found the girls yet though.
