LOOK UP Please. Richard CLARKE, b. c 1832 Cambridge, Stroud, Gloucestershire

LOOK UP Please. Richard CLARKE, b. c 1832 in or near Cambridge, Stroud, Gloucestershire UK

Parents John CLARKE and Eliza(beth) HANCOCK Clarke.

I'm not having much luck finding my GGF Richard CLARKE in or around Cambridge in Cambridgeshire. :confused:

I do have a short entry written by him in ~1888 that said "born Cambridge, educated there, worked on the railways", so I am also taking a long shot that he meant Cambridge as in HAMbridge instead of Cambridge as in FAMEbridge. :D I see that there was a railway in the general vicinity ( I presume in that era).

When he sailed for Australia November 1856 he reported his mother 'dead', and father's whereabouts 'unknown'.

Is there a Gloucestershire expert here in this Forum/Site who might have some information around that village, and any information about BMD?

Thanks, Colin
