Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

Don't know if this puzzle can be solved or not. I have the death in Australia of a Robert THURSTON b. 1866 Norfolk and only mother listed as Annie.

Would seem from the census that both parents had died:


There is one other possible THURSTON to an Ann marriage but I've not matched the couples yet.

I think the first one fits the marriage.

The second one probably fits an earlier marriage.

Lack of baptism records makes this one almost impossible to sort out.

Don't know who Annie married or when and don't know her maiden name.

I can't find any trees at all that help.
