Ann what do you mean what relation is John Cowburn to James and alice?

KathleenBell Report 28 Feb 2013 14:54

John Cowburn born 1851 is said on the 1851 census to be the son of James and Alice - although Alice seems a bit old at 54 to be having children. It's always possible that he was the son of their daughter Ellen and brought up as James and Alice's son.
