Susan Tks your kind offer. Can you look on 1861 and 1871 for George Peek bc 1854 Charlton, Kent, living with his father Samuel Peek a gardener and his mother (don't know her name) and any possible siblings in the Greenwich area. (I've also put a separate note about George Peek about 2 messages above - I'm getting desperate - I have details of his later life but cannot trace the beginning!). Christine

Hello Susan, Looking for Dennis Davy/Davey born c 1839/40 Mendham Suffolk. I have him on the 1841 census age 1 with parents George and Lucy Davy. If you have the time could you look for him in 61 and 71 [I found him in 1881 with wife Anna age 46 living Norwich, spelt Davey] and then in 91 and 01 please. If its not too much to ask could I have address and anyone else living with him, this will help me with his brothers and sisters and his own children. Many thanks. Pat.

Hi Susan Thanks for the look ups. I think I found Dennis Davy in 1901 but having no credit left couldn`t go any further. Dennis Davy age 61 born Mendham Sfk. Living Norwich occupation Millwright. Just been back to Ancestry but not being a subscriber couldn`t get too far, but there is Anna E. Davy born c1834/5 showing for 1871 and also 1891. She is Dennis` wife so hopefully they are together.

Hi Susan, thanks for the offer, i don't know if you can help or not. i am trying to find members of my dad's side of the family which i don't really know any thing about . My grandad was william charles Burton born 1904? his parents were George and Susan( i think) i know my grandad lived in canterbury in kent but i don't know if he was born in canterbury but i know it was kent. George Burton would of been born 1880-1884 and would of married susan around 1900. Either my grandad or great grandad had a sister called Dolly and a brother called Archibald, don't know if that will help. Sorry i've gone on a bit but i really need expert help, with such little information i don't have a clue. hope you can help. Good luck Many thanks Sarn
