I see you have entered some of your address now Di. Do you need any help finding the others, or are you managing ok?

Don't want to spoil your fun with your new Ancestry access.

*then again I may not be able to find them*

Thanks Marg. I found some census entries I had printed off years back, lol. Ancestry not yet on, will try for the 1841 later.

I though his mother was Elizabeth Bracking, but think that may be his grandmother, so need to check back when I get my access.

Brilliant, shout if you need any help.

There is a marriage for Francis and Eliza on family search. I thought it must be wrong at first but I found them on the 1841 and 1851 and her age is massively wrong on the 1841, so I reckon the marriage is right.
Won't spoil your fun though with Ancestry.
