Hi Lorraine, Could you clear something up for me please? I have this data fron the 1851 census - Isac Roles,1800,Evercreech Eliza Roles,1806,Milton Abraham Roles,1839,Evercreech Henry Roles,1839,Evercreech Isaac,1836,Evercreech Matilda Roles,1842,Evercreech And this from Evercreech parish raeords Abraham Roles,1771 Frances Roles Please if it is not too much for you to do could you check for these two families? Other branches have been mistranscribed as Rose instead of Roles so this could be the case with these as well. Many thanks, Sinead
