AnninGlos Report 8 Feb 2006 08:58

Thank you Kat, I don't think that can be her as, because there are children in the 1851 I am sure William her husband was still alive in 1841. I wonder if they were staying over the border in Devon or Somerset? Oh well, back to the drawing board. UPDATE Just doing a bit of detective work in my records and they had a daughter born in 1842 in Misterton, which is in Somerset, sorry to waste your time with Dorset, they did move around an awful lot this famiy,, a habit which was continued by the next generation. OK got them now, theyw ere in Misterton, thank you for your help. Thanks again ann Glos
