Thanks Emeltee.

Trezise has me puzzled. It is a fairly common name in Cornwall so not a crazy misreading of Rogers.

It looks to be the correct birth reg for John.

Thanks Emeltee.

I looked up the one I had in my tree in GRO and I didn't check 1845. :rolleyes:

I blame the temperature 38C today. (And tomorrow.)
