Hi Sheila. Thanks for offer. Sorry this is quite long and complicated. Trying to trace parents and children of George Hone born approx 1849. He is on 1871 census as living in Arundel Sussex with William and Ann Burfield. George listed as nephew. He was originally born in Poplar Middlesex. On 1861 census a family has been found. Thomas Hone 48, Sarah Hone 44, John 9, William 8, Benjamin 7, Thomas 6, George 45 and George 14. Think this is possibly the George I am looking for. Don't think Thomas and Sarah are his parents. All these born in Poplar Middlesex. Then on a message board somewhere (can't find it again) I found a lady looking for info on James Hone who married Charlotte Burfield in Arundel Sussex in 1802. Got quite excited as found the Burfields and George living there before. James and Charlotte had children. Robert, James, George and possibly John. Have feeling that the George in this family may be missing link. I have gone back this far as trying to connect family tree to someone on Genes site. We have connection by something both our parents have talked about but can't find where it is. Really appreciate your help but if too busy, not to worry. Thanks again, Pam.
