The last mention of his name is some sort of village census in Stickney Parish Book and his widowed mum writes at the top of the page, herself and her household and the bottom of the page her children, who they married, number of children they have , where they are
1856 :date worked out as I haven't written the date on the copy I have from the dates on the record, ie Vicar arrived in 1855, his mother died in 1857 it sgives his name and next to it "at sea"

I can find no census, no marriage, no death:'( Can anyone help please
