Hi there,

Could sks please do a lookup for the following siblings:

Charles W Roberts B 1805/8

Their parents were John Roberts and Elizabeth.
For Charles i have two dates from different sources, one as 1805 in Hampshire, and the other in 1808 in Dover.

Hi Jackie,

Its hard to determine which one is Charles and Edward are in 1841.

Putting in 1808 with 5yrs either side there are 69 of them born in that time frame. 22 are not born in the county they are living in.

There are 3 Charles Roberts 2 born county of Kent both born abt 1811 both occ ag. labs, one living in Crayford, Kent, the other living in Westerham Kent. The 3rd is living in Greenwich born abt 1811 occ butcher.Putting in 1805 with 5yrs either side brings up 43 Charles Roberts. If you put in Hampshire as county of birth, nothing comes up for a Charles born in that county.

Edward Roberts putting in 1818 with 5yrs either side born Kent bring up 3.

1. Est year of birth 1811 occ ag. lab living in Ebony Kent (Tenderton)
2. Est year of birth 1819 occ surgeon living in Lewisham Kent
3. Est year of birth occ labourer 1816 living in Tonbridge Kent

Leaving out county of birth brings up 134, 60 of which are not born in the county they are living in.
