Hello I am looking for anyone who is connected to Vincent Knowles Walker 1829 - 1878, he is my 3rd x great grandfather, Vincent was hung at York Castle in York, England on the 15th April 1878, he had some brothers who emigrated to either Australia or New Zealand not long after his death.
I would be very interested to hear from any long lost cousins & hopefully some one may have some photographs of Vincent.
I do look forward very much to hearing from some one, my name is Angela.
Many thanks.

Hello Jax, I know Vincent is in a few trees & I have made connections, I am hoping some one will contact me from his brothers who emigrated to either Australia or New Zealand, I am not sure though how many brothers he had. Thanks for your help.
