Thanks Geoff.

I assume it would be in Blything RD and that one because age fitted.

No way of telling then if a burial entry didn't have Westleton or Leiston.

I do have them:

1841
HO107 Piece 1182 Book/Folio 4/33 Page 9
Civil Parish: Melksham
County: Wiltshire
Registration District: Melksham
ED: 2
Address: Lowbourne Place
Robert Stow 40 Bailiff
Sarah Stow 38
William Stow 12 ? [17] Apprentice [Image has 12]
Thomas Stow 15 Apprentice
Kitty Stow 12
Robert Stow 10
Jane Stow 8
Eliza Stow 6 [Image has 5]
all born in county

In 1851 Robert is listed as a Pensioner. Does that imply he served in the Army? I presume Bailiff's don't get pensions when they retire.
