Hi Chris,

Shirley, if you take a look at the 1871 census image daughter Mary has been paralised since birth - so maybe she was in a hospital as she got older.

There's nothing obvious for James on passenger lists, he was an accountant in 1871, but law student in 1861 so could be under either occupation. If the son's marriage is correct he was a solicitor.

There's also no obvious death for him, I would have thought there would be a probate record but none that I can see.

Shirley Report 8 Apr 2013 12:32

Hi flip
So kind of you to reply. Yes I noted the daughter Mary disability I have searched London hospital no luck. Yes the marriage is correct regarding William Reed ( his son) but I doubt the info on the certificate was accurate re james occupation . There are entries in local new papers stating he was declared bankrupt in 1864 he was also in court for drunk ness and threatening to kill his aunt Mary Barber in 1871 although he was discharge without sentencing. He did work as a solicitors clerk prior to 1871 thanks again for your trouble.
Regards
Shirley

There's this slight possibility for Harriet's death:

EDIT:

Deaths Mar 1927 (>99%)
Read Harriett 86 Edmonton 3a 718

I'm picking that one because daughter Clara died in Edmonton registration district:
