I would be very grateful if someone could look up the 1871 census for James and Emma Last and their family. James and emma were born in framsden. They would have had a son called frederick aged 8, george aged 2/3 and Mary Ann aged 0 born in Debenham. Many thanks :)

Thank you Dave for that info! I have found a William Last registered December quarter 1857 in plomesgate, Suffolk. Also Amelia Last March quarter 1859, also born in Plomesgate, Suffolk. Do you think that is them? :)

Hi R.J :)
A good pickup from you regarding Emma being 30 & Wm 13 yrs old.
Over the top with me!!
The age gap between Wm & his sibs should have jumped out.
Back to Dave's post
William Last from Eyke 1857 his baptism in IGI
parents Samuel & Eleanor. Amelia 1859 with same parents.
It's member submitted so perhaps not correct.

Hi Oz
There is a William last aged 2, I think with siblings Adeline aged 4 and suzanna aged 6 and mother called Eliza aged 27. Do you think that James could have been marrried to her? I don't know if I have all the correct details as I can't see the census, I am only going by what I can see. :)

I have just found out from a 1871 census that william Last was born in Barham, Suffolk. Does that help anyone in trying to find out more details on who william Last is?:)

Hi
I am wondering if William was born out of wedlock, or maybe adopted. Although 28 James was not married or a widower on the 1861 census and was living at home. Emma would have been about 17/18 when William was born. I think Williams birth record is O/D 1859 Bosmere ref 4a 500. It may be the answer to obtain the birth cert.

Hi O z,
I have just found a website on the Lasts and it says that Adeline, Suzanna and William all had the same parents - William Last and Eliza Proctor, so that William can't be the son of James and Emma!:confused:

Hi Oz I am not convinced that James was married before Emma. William was born at Barham, the children in your post were born some 9 miles away at Brettenham, and Eliza is a widow. Sorry

The William for whom I have provided reg details on post 14 was born Barham in Bosmere District, so a good chance he's the one.
