Hi Maddie

Thanks for that...

Food for thought with the age - definitely...

I have found a family with those names on family search - plus a William, Luke and Alfred but I wasn't convinced that the parents were right for the children's ages as they were married in 1822 and William was born in 1847(!)(!)(!)

Perhaps he did marry another Lucy - and had a previous family too...

Very curious...

Hi Maddie

Sorry for the delay in responding. Lost the internet connection for 5 hours after uninstalling a virus checker!!!!!!!!! Won't mention its name.........

Thank you for so much for looking these up... Looks like our Thomas was a bit of a rum un... for want of a better and cleaner phrase...

These ancestors were anything but boring(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)(!)

I'll add them to my list - have a think - and probably be back with more questions...

You have been warned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many thanks once again...

I really do appreciate all the help that you all give freely..........

B.
