Can anybody find anything about the following 3 people? We have their baptism records (from parish records) but nothing else at all. Not able to finfd them on any census, cannot find any records of them dying!!
Charles WATTS b 1809 (baptised 21 May 1809)
James John WATTS b 1811 (baptised 22 Jul 1811)
Joseph WATTS b 1815 (baptised 28 Dec 1815)
There were 3 other brothers who we are able to trace forward successfully, William, George Jonathan and Cecil Henry. William died in 1840, George Jonathan is a direct ancestor of my wife, and Cecil Henry died in 1822.
It is the 3 lost boys that we cannot find out anything atall!!

Thank you Ann for your quick response. We do have the details of the baptisms and that is all. We have been researching for many years, visited Huntingdon Records office a few times, belonged to Huntingdonshire FHS, but still cannot find anything else about these 3 people. Our next step is to go to St Michael's, Chesterton church and look through the actual record books, and we intend to do that as soon as we can get time.

I was hoping maybe there is a descendant of one of these 3 who has more information.

Note - there is also a Chesterton as a suburb of Cambridge, but this is not the one we are researching. Our Chesterton is on the Oundle Road west of Peterborough.

have you used "Search" top right hand corner of this page - you will then be able to see if anyone else on this site has these people in their tree - if there is, then you can contact the tree owner
