If you don't subscribe to Ancestry you could see if the information is available on Mundia, the free to join sister site of Ancestry.

A few trees on ancestry state that Susan's maiden name was Latham. Also that her father was Thomads and she was born in Cork.

I think I would make contact with the tree owner an ask where they info comes from.

There are no records of travel between Ireland and the UK mainland

Look for baptisms at.............

Was the youngest child's birth registered?

If it was....get a copy of the cert to find out the mother's maiden name, without which you can't look for her baptism


ann Report 8 Jan 2014 15:13

Ancestors born in Ireland now in Poplar. From 1861 census, 4 children born in Ireland 5th child poplar, therefore believe would have traveled from Ireland before birth of 5th child ( 1855 to 1858) Is there some way of checking this ?

Charles King 1824 Wife Susan 1821 children James / Mary/Charles /Richard
Irish Margaret English.

Is there some way of finding out birth place for Charles King / wife Susan

Many thanks in advance Ann
