thanks for that horse but they just don't seem to fit, first one wrong father should be Thomas and the other one I traced but didn't fit with the 1881 as it says John is a widower.
Just seems so strange that I cannot find the births for the children.

That's the Sinfields I had found but discounted because of the 1881 census, I have now found them as well in the 1881 census so I am more puzzled now by the original find!
The original find fits in with a marriage of a Julia Sinfield in which the address was given as 5 Heneague Lane which is the address of the John Sinfield in post 1.
The only trouble is that none of the information on the 1881 census is confirmed by any other data that I can find.

I'm giving up on this as its driving me nuts.
The family just keep in the shadows.
The children seem to disappear only to emerge later when they get married the parents just remarry with the spouse still alive.
So on the back burner as its given me a headache!!:':)'(
