Going to Shrewsbury on Wed. so looked over the notes I took last time. On the 1851 census was Samuel Wilkes aged 90. Had not done the maths!! Yes he was my gt x3 grandfather. He was living with grandson. Put his name in the LDS and before you know it I have a whole gang of new rellies. Of course many are probably wrong but I will be able to check.
