Hello Dave,

Thanks. Yes. William Henry MUSCUTT & Ann Turner INGS
6 Feb 1848 St Anne Limehouse, Middlesex, England

I think the born Bow? not London. Possibly some place in Suffolk.

I think 'Jane' aged 9 in 1861 should be James.

I think the eldest son Thomas J not there in 1861 was born in Blackwell, Essex in 1850.

They are possibly in Essex in 1851.


Hi Dave

a long shot, but could this be them

Thomas Fraser Macquetto
Birth abt 1849
Father William Macquetto
Mother Ann Macquetto
born: Stepney, Middlesex, England

Civil parish: Stepney
Ecclesiastical parish: St Thomas

Registration district: Stepney
Sub-registration district: Mile End Old Town Upper

William Macquetto 28 Scotland (looks like Customs weigher)
Ann Macquetto 31 Devon
Thomas Fraser Macquetto 2 Stepney
Thomas Macquetto 76 Scotland, Visitor, Chelsea pensioner

Hello dave,

Thanks for looking but I don't think it's that one.

The damn tree says he was born in Blackwell, Essex - well if he was his birth was not registered there:

Births Mar 1850
Muscutt Thomas James Poplar 2 367

It seems all the children were baptised at the same time - c. 5 Jun 1864 St. Mary, Rotherhithe. If that's correct then Thomas should be with the family in 1851.
