Dear Cherry, If you would care to give me his wife and childrens names I will look in ancestry for you. Sally


Star Report 15 Nov 2004 11:03

Dear Sally, thank you for your help, Charles James family from the 1851 census is Elizabeth James 47 born Little Torrington Frances James 16 born Great Torrington George James 14 born Great Torrington Mary Ann James 12 born Great Torrington Charles James 9 Born Great Torrington John James 6 born Great Torrington Timothy L James born Great Torrington. Address New Street Great Torrington but i dont know where Charles was that night , the person who found this info for me didn,t say whether he loked for Charles so i didn,t know if you had an index for the 1851 census that you might be able to look on and give me some idea where he might be. If it is to much trouble i will understand as i know James isn,t the most helpful surname, but any help would be gratefully received. Thank again Cherry
