Thanks dave.

William was born abt 1811 so age rounded down.

Not impossible William married by 1834 but the tree has no marriage for him.

However, if the tree is correct this William died in 1880 and not before 1865.

Also a brother who could be the father of Sarah (the granddaughter of John senior) James born 1813.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks dave,

That part of the tree is correct. So difficult to know what bits to believe and what not to. Do I believe William was an Innkeeper?

Using only what I have from NSW records and believing nothing in the various trees I think with deaths for 16x William DIXON in RD Cockermouth 1838-1865 I'm probably not going to solve this one.

Regards,

Dave
