I have been able to fill in a few gaps in my family tree, thanks to your "searching for" and the people who sent in information. My grt. grt .grt grandfather James Wright went suddenly went missing from census reports, and his family went into the workhouse in Dunmow Essex. It turned out htat James was convicted of burglary and was sentenced to 14 yrs and transportation to Australia in 1841.
