Hahaha, no..

This may be their marriage and Emma's death, I wonder if she died at childbirth, given Sarah's age.

Q2 1841
BALL Emma Keynsham 11 136
BRIGHT Henry Keynsham 11 136

Q4 1858 Bright Emma Keynsham 5c 527

Geoff

Edited in the death date...

Geoff, why do you think it's Emma?

Henry's father is John.

We are looking for a John & Emma or a John & Elizabeth marriage probably.

I'm not 100% certain, Dave - but I haven't found a John and Elizabeth in the time frame, just trying get ages on death via the BI. John had a dau. Elizabeth, it can't be her as she was around in 1861..

Thanks Geoff.

That seems to fit.

I can't find a marriage that fits. Don't think it would be in Bath.
