In the 1851 Census Elizabeth's mother Sophia Scuffham is living with them and in every Census they are living in Bell Lane, it's only the 1871 Census which gives pob as Alconbury, all the others state Staplow, Beds.

Thanks Emeltee.

I'm trying to connect the Samuel born abt 1812 who arrived in 1852 with the younger Samuel and family.

Can't see a baptism for the Samuel born abt 1824 in either county.

GRO Reference: 1851 M Quarter in WEST LONDON Volume 02 Page 273

Probably not the right one.

Can't see Thirza in GRO.

We may be stuck if no baptism can be found for the Samuel born abt 1824.


Frances Dennis 18 August 1816 Hail Weston age 4 years, parents James Dennis and Sarah

The only baptism I can find so far for a Samuel Crow in Eaton Socon is the one for the Samuel Crow born 1826 who married Elizabeth Scuffham.

Thanks Emeltee.

That's the baptism I'm after but I can't find it on FS or FreeREG ??

I can only find two baptisms in Eaton Socon, both of which are on FreeReg

Samuel Crowe bapt. 23 April 1826 Staplow in Eaton Socon. Parents James, a Labourer and Ann

This is the Samuel I found in the 1881 Census.

The other baptism is

Samuel Crowe bapt. 27 February 1831 Dulow in Eaton Socon. Parents William, a Labourer and Ann

Thanks Emeltee.

One of the marriages in NSW had the name as Grow so I tried it but not Crowe.

Alconbury is a lot further north so odd one out in one census.

One large family arrived 1852 and then later just a single female from the other family.

Rebecca c. 9 Apr 1854 Alconbury-cum-Weston, Huntingdonshire
Samuel CROW & Elizabeth

Rebecca K Crow Arrival: 22 Apr 1875, Queensland Ship: 'Winefred'
Page Number: 903 QSA Item: 18477 Microfilm: Z1958 Microfilm 2: M1698

If it had been an assisted to NSW then possibly a ref to any relatives already in colony but no such info on the list to Qld.

Thanks Geoff.

The marriage in NSW is actually GROWE not Grow so I really missed searching for Crowe.

We may not be able to find the connection between the 2x Samuel.

We have Richard and James for the fathers.

Richard for the one born 1812 and James for the one born 1826.

Nothing that fits.

James Crow
christening: 16 August 1674 EATON SOCON, BEDFORD
father: Richardi Crow

James Crow
christening: 27 November 1730 EATON SOCON, BEDFORD
father: Richard Crow

We could move on. :biggrin:
