I can find the family in 1841 and 1851 and after that they disappear from the face of the earth. I cannot find a death for Moses, nor a birth, nor a marriage. Wraxall PRs are on FreeReg but he doesn't appear on there at all.

Well that explains why I cannot find anything about them after 1851. It also helps to pinpoint Ann's death.

Ann Knight Jun 1856 Bedminster 5c 491 aged 54
