I have tried finding about on Family search to nothing there. I was interested in finding if i could on parents of james Baker and Sarah Lewis. James and maria her maiden name and marriage. Thomas Lewis i think and his wife Margaret? they lived in Westminster area. thomas and wife born around 1794. i found 1841 census of James and Maria born around 1810 with James and his sister Jane, I wondered also idf there was any information on 1851 census.
Thank you to all you lovely folk who do look ups voluntary for us.
