Richard CLARKE born Cambridge c1831 **Edited**

Charleston, South Carolina, US
Seeking birth details my GGF Richard CLARKE

He once wrote "Born Cambridge, Educated there, ... worked on Railways..."

Marriage Cert. also says, b. Cambridge.

Mother said to be Eliza(beth) HANCOCK, Father said to be John CLARK(E).

Timeline based on Immigration records to Australia says 25 yrs old on arrival Feb 1857 = 1832. Marriage Cert varies this by one year and =1831. Death Cert. =1831.

****Edited****As a result of ideas from this excellent site, I now have a special interest in a Richard CLARKE, aged 10, 1841 census, labourer's child, b. in Cambridgeshire, found in the census of North Witchford Union Workhouse, civil parish Doddington. Is this him? Is he there because his mother Eliza(beth) HANCOCK CLARKE died (she did before 1856, so maybe before 1841, and father John CLARKE could not support child?? *****

There is a 'lodger' Richard CLARKE aged 19, in house of glovemaker Sarah Ann POOLEY, in 1851 Cambridge census which is a timeline match at least. No details on him. ****Edited .... could it be the Richard from the Workhouse above, now employed and left the workhouse???****

BRICKWALL since 1979. :mad:

Anyone, anything ..... please ..

Cheers, Colin
