Hi Pauline,

This is a possibility for Gowan, seeing that Thomas was in Surrey in 1861 and Bexley Kent in 1871.

Civil parish Dartford
RD Dartford

Dartford Union Workhouse

Gowen Clark age 47 occ mariner born Sunderland

A possibilty for Gowens marriage

1838

Jul/Aug/Sept 1/4
District Suderland

Brides listed

Elizabeth Jobling
Jane Thompson
Eleanor Ward
Ann Watson

What I would do is to send off to the local registry office as they will search 3yrs either side of 1851 for his birth. Not to sure if the cost if £7.00 it may be slightly more. If they cannot find the birth they will refund the money!.

Heres the link to Sunderland City Council, they have an email address probaly be worthwhile asking them the price etc.
