Thanks, Chris - it obviously wasn't Rosie's George, anyway, as he was living in West Ham in 1861.

Can't find Sophia's birth, but assuming birthplace Coney Weston, Suffolk in 1861 census is correct, then these might be her parents in 1861 (below).
In which case, Robert's not with them, either.

Rosie Report 11 Apr 2013 15:03

Thanks again Chris - it looks like there was a connection also to Canning Town. My Lee grandfathers all came from Cambridgeshire but it was my 3 x grandfather Matthew Lee who first moved to West Ham, Essex by 1861 taking wife Hannah and 2 sons my grt grt grandfather Matthew Robert and George- George was born in Littleport , Cambridgeshire in 1860 .

Matthew is still in West Ham in 1871 calling himself a widower while Hannah is with Robert Outlaw in Eston Yorkshire with Matthew Robert Lee age 19. They then seem to stay in West Ham until their deaths which were in the same quarter of 1883. I wonder if Robert was living in West Ham where he met Hannah


I can't find any record apart from 1861 for George Lee where he is 1 yr old - there is a George William Lee baptism in March 1857 in Littleport with parents Matthew and Hannah - he could have died as a baby and theyalso named the next child George . If anyone can help me find George it would be great. I know Lee isn't the easiest name to search for so any help would be fantastic.

Cheers

Hello - I'm back on the trail

Thanks for the baptism record - looks like the right record for "my" Robert but he's still nowhere to be found in 1861 - Ihe could have been with grandparents or other family members with his name indistinguishable (can't spell !) I'll keep looking possibly at all Outlaws living in or around Suffolk

I wonder why Dalham is missing from 1851.

Thanks everyone - much appreciated :-)

So that is the correct family in 1861 above. They are also in Dalham in 1841.

George and Matthew Robert are the correct births -

Could Samuel be Robert

I dont think that Hannah and Robert were married as I found a possible record for her first husband Matthew Lee in 1871 in West Ham calling himself a widower - or maybe this wasn't him.

I haven't found a marriage for Hannah and Robert so maybe Robert did have another name. Lack of a birth record is also a mystery.

The 1871 and 1881 census for Hannah and Robert are definately correct although Hannah's place of birth is down as Norfolk and not Cambridge.

Where is Robert ?

I AM NOT CLAIMING THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ROBERT!
This is the only family of Outlaws living in Dalham in 1861. They're also there in 1841, but I can't find them in 1851. But no sign of a Robert.
