Had another chuckle to myself when I read your last message! Elaine While I remember, it turns out some of my Elds were baptised at St Peters, I can remember joking with my hubby about relatives possibly being there in the past whilst we were waiting for the boatman talk. It was all true.

Thanks Mike No George Ward though, if I have time I am going to look through the trade directories and see if I can find him. Got him 1855 listed as fishmonger but they are not the easiest of people to unravel as now I think a sister popped back to Newark to live as well. Oh well.... Elaine

Hello Mike I found that one too and groaned cause I also found a Reuben about a month ago in Newark who is a fishmonger and wondered if they were all brothers. My George is the son of Jonas Ward (fishmonger from Newark as you will recall), coincidence..... so now I have Thomas, Jonas and Reuben and possibly George's sister marrying Reuben so staying a Ward and Reuben has also called his son George! Will I ever unravel them? Here's hoping I do Elaine PS In 1841 Reuben age 41 Thomas age 40 Jonas age 50
