Could we have any dates


Londonbelle Report 28 Mar 2013 16:47

When where George & Jane born?


Shirley Report 28 Mar 2013 16:43

Looking for any information on the parentage of George & Jane Mallett of Wisbech.. Jane had a daughter named Jane Ellen but no father named. George (Jane senior's brother) married someone named Mary (but what was her surname)? George was a bargemaster in Wisbech but who were his parents?
Any help would be much appreciated.
