Age at death = 66 - DoB = c1844..

A tree has father as Robert Denys Denson..

Geoff

EDIT: for Emily Caroline..
Her mother split with her first husband around that time and hooked up with Quinan but they didnt marry until 1861.

QUINAN
Given names Robert
Event Marriage
Spouse's family name HEMMINSLY
Spouse's given name Emma Frances
Reg. year 1861

I have a gut feeling there is some gossip lurking with this lot.

Robert Quinan suicided in 1865.

Looks like a few of the births werent registered. Aunt said not to do to much on it as its only a side line on what she is working on. I looked at this one a couple of years ago [another forum] and they found some info on kids but we know there were only 4 and the other forum had found more than that. To expensive to buy that many cert.

Thank you for the help :)
