I noticed Helen is offering look ups for the VRI. I have the second edition if any one wants a look up. I am in Canada so keep in mind the time change (7 hours behind London) if I take a while to answer. Teresa

Hi Joan; No luck, I am afraid. The only William Kirklands are for 1806 and 1843. The one for 1806 has a father whose name is William. If you think either of these are possibilities I will send the rest of the information.

Hi,Teresa, This maybe a too complex search,but for years I have been looking for birth/christening of Thomas Cowdrey[various spellings!] He married Martha Strong in 1818,Chiswick,and they had a son Moses b.1819 in Harrow. Martha was born in Stratfieldsaye,Hampshire in the 1790's,but can find no record of Thomas there. He wasn't born in Middlesex,as in the 1841 census it says not of this county.Unfortunatly he died before 1851. Can you help? Sorry,Teresa,meant to say he would have been born around 1795.
