Thanks for finding the JAMES'S for me. Thanks also for your helpful email suggesting places to look. I'm sorry to be a nuisance, but if you're not too busy could you please try to find the name of GEORGE JAMES'S parents - he was born in 1852 in MINEHEAD, SOMERSET. I have tried to find them myself, but I keep hitting a brick wall - I have names of various James's in Minehead that could be related, but no conclusive evidence. Thanks again - you're a saint. Kaye

Hi Margaret The Colthorpes were born in the Ispwich area. I know that Florence was born in the Woodbridge registration district in a place which I think is called Kirton (I cannot make it out clearly on the birth certificate). I hope this will help you locate them for me. Thank you again for giving up your time like this. Alex
