Hi Lorraine Thank you very much for your kind offer. I would be very grateful if you could look for two people in Lincolnshire in 1841 for me, please. I am a little bit vague on detail, so don't worry if the details aren't specific enough. They are: Henry Swan, a mariner in the coasting trade, born Boston, approx 1814, and Betsy Ann Haddom, his wife, also born Boston, approx 1812. I don't know if she was already Swan by 1841, but they had children born in 1846 and 1849; the one born in 1849 was born in London Road, Skirbeck Quarter, Boston, and the family were living there in 1871, too, so that might be a possible address for 1841. I would love to find out if they had more children/who Betsy and Henry's parents were; I haven't found anything on FreeBMD/familysearch. Many thanks in advance for looking Lysianne

Claire Report 30 Aug 2005 08:55

Hi Lorraine I wonder if you would be kind enough to look up George Mockridge 1828 East Orchard and Mary A Plowman 1829 West Orchard. I have them on 1881 census but they are not on 1861 census from 1837 online. I know they were married 1854 but if they are on 1841 or 1851 census I would be able to put their families together. Thanking you so much Claire
