Elizabeth, I can't find their children either. Is it a possible that they moved out of the county?or perhaps they were just visiting somebody in another county on the night of the census? Sorry not to be of more help, Nicola

Rick Report 8 Mar 2004 16:43

Hi Nicola, Please could you check the Devon 1851 census for John Brock, a mason, living in Stoke Damerel. It's not the one living at 11, Navy Row - that's his son. I'd guess the father would be 50 to 55ish. Thanks, Rick.

Hi Nicola, That's the one ! Some LDS church member has posted this family on the familysearch site too, but I hadn't made the link with the younger John Brock before. Thanks very much for this and for the Simons you found the other day too. You've really opened up an area of the family I was stuck on and I'm very grateful. Rick.

Hi Nicola, thanks for the offer. Could you look-up John Humphreys or Humphries for me please. Warwickshire. On the 1881 census it says he was born in Studley but i`m not sure about that as he seems to have moved around a lot .He was born 1837ish. Many thanks Julie

Hi Nicola, Would it be possible for you to look for the Poynts family. I don't have an address although Henry C Poynts was apparently born in 1850 in Tasebury Norfolk or possibly Depwade. Sorry this isn't very much to go on! Many thanks Naomi

Nicola, You are an Angel and a star! I think you have just broken down a brick wall or least opened a hole in it!! I think Henry Points is mine. I've already ordered a cert for this man so this should confirm it for me. Wonderful! You have made my day!! Many, many thanks Naomi xxxx
