Kerri Report 3 Sep 2006 08:19

Hi Mary Could you find in 1891 & 01 census Arthur Betts born 1859 Barming,Kent In 1881 he was with in Teston,Kent,his parents David ( b 1831 Teston,Kent)& Mary (1833 West Farleigh)& siblings Frank,Rose,Herbert,Allen,Emily. And could you also look at the image of 1891 census for David & Mary Betts (as above) with son Earnest H. Betts 19 (b 1872 Maidstone) & their grandchildren 2 Warren children,one said to be Athenesa A. Warren 6 (b 1865 Maidstone). Do you think that Athenesa, is in fact Theresa? Thanks Kerri
