Many thanks, Dave.

John Smith reported a death that occurred at 28 Clarence Street in 1872. I am now satisfied that the deceased was his wife's brother.

The other names mean nothing to me - yet!

well here they are

Robert Hickling 26
Sophia 26

Susan Lymons 28
Elizabeth A Brimmel 4

James Crocker 42

Thanks, Dave. They look like a lot of unrelated individuals/family groups to me. I am not inclined to spend too much time checking them out but I will make a note of the names in case they should crop up again in the future
