There are other Calls but some POB Bowling and some Bradford will have a look later to see who's who.

Julie you are a star. How interesting that the Calverts were married into the Call family so far back. The lady Im researching for is retiring and is now wanting to trace her roots. Her G G Grandfather was Simpson and her Grandfather Lewis married Harriet Calvert and immigrated to South Africa.

I have now managed to put together a line thanks to you. Could you see if there is an entry in 1861 which includes simpson. His parents were John Call and Mary Simpson. Would be interested to know which Calls were his siblings
