From 1853 shipping record:

James 32 Farm Labourer Kelton ? Cambridgeshire John & Sarah living at Kelton ? Cambridgeshire Methodist Neither None Good None Paid £4 for self and family
Elizabeth 37 - Kelton ? Cambridgeshire Jeremiah & Martha Spillman both dead Methodist Both

(Crick) Maria 14 Nursemaid Kelton ? Cambridgeshire a mother Elizth. Bradford on board Father dead Methodist Can read

Charles 25 Labourer Kelton ? Cambridgeshire John & Sarah living at Kelton ? ChofE Neither
Hannah 22 - Little Purlow ? Suffolk Joseph & Harriet Chapman mother living at Great Bradley Suffolk ChofE Can read

I can't make sense of 'Kelton' and it's not Linton.

:2fun: Must have been the accent. It's actually Carlton. :D

And 'Purlow' must be Thurlow.

This explains Maria CRICK:

Marriages Dec 1849
Bradford James Linton 14 153
Crick Elizabeth Linton 14 153 ** Married William Crick in 1835

James Bradford
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
parents: John Bradford,​ Sarah

Elizabeth Spellman
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
parents: Jeremiah Spellman,​ Martha

Marriages Jun 1848
Bradford Charles Risbridge 12 561
Chapman Anna Risbridge 12 561

I'd like a look up please for the families in 1841 and 1851.
