Hi Deborah, I wonder if you can help? Looking for a marriage between a John LEE and Mary MILLS, would be in the Tipton/Dudley/West Brom areas of Staffs. Probably between 1871-1881. Thank you Debbie

Sorry Deborah, it is the 1851 census for Devon that I am after. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Deborah, I am trying to find the exact birth date of my Gt Gt grandfather Henry Wynn Briggs I have been told from one source it was 1884 but on the LDS site it said 18/04/1881 at Weare Giffard, Devon. I do have Devon from another source, so that matches. Died 1919 in Falmouth, Cornwall. Again on LDS there were strong indications that his parents names were William Briggs and Inez Cornish... I would like to find out their DOB, marriage date, and death dates... or any information further to that would also be great! Henry was married to Susan Williams and they had 3 boys Henry Wynn (Harry) 1915-1950, William, Frank Hugh, Doreen, Inez Ellen and Stephany Catherine. I don't know if you have any records of their details but it would be much appreciated! Huge thanks for your time! Risha
