Peter's brother Paul married Jane Thomas 1808 Frindsbury -

Don't know how John would fit in with age as 45 in 1841. The name is not that common in England and Faversham would fit.

Hi Dave.. Hope you're enjoying the festivities :)

Yeah, rounding down to 45y makes it worse.. If that is his marriage to Sophia Baker in 1821, he would probably have been born before 1806. It could be his father's 2nd marriage :rolleyes:

Hope you're enjoying the festivities

Yes thanks - turkey and plum pudding and fine wine and chocolates and shortbread, etc.. :biggrin:

Trust you are also Geoff.

Trees only have brothers Peter and Paul. Peter married first time in 1798. Two daughters Amelia and Ann so John does not fit there. Don't know if this is Paul's only or second marriage.
