Many thanks, Kate. I don't have Ancestry at present and I know how much easier it would be to find them if I did.

I wonder what happened to the parents.

Nice to see that the Stilwell name Abraham was carried down. Mary Elizabeth was a Stilwell before her marriage.

Also, looking at the baptisms, there is a Walter George born 15 Aug 1868 and baptised the same day as Joseph John. Arthur's middle name is William. And there is a Herbert (or Hubert?) George born 7 Sep 1875 and baptised the same day as Frederick Ernest.

Kate, you are a star. Many thanks.
I'm getting along much better with them now - the second names really helped.
