Hi,
We have two brothers James Dann b. abt 1807 and Allen Dann b. abt 1812. They married sisters Rebecca and Maria Bowles. We know abt them going forward. Family deaths etc. They probably had a brother Robert born abt 1821. Parents William Dann and Mary Allen married 1797. Cant find records of baptisms etc. Did they have other siblings.

I cannot see any more Baptisms in this village for William and May Dann

A Thomas and Elizabeth Dann ..... Presumably a relation have 6 baptism entries

Will check around the surrounding Villages
