Census details

Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): I have not looked for our William's birth so now I will do that....

I believe he is the man Chr in Pakefield 5th Jan 1834. Father John and mother Susan. Found with them in 1851 along with 2 sisters Sarah and Ann. Father John born in 1803 a fisherman.

The marriage of this couple is most likely = Bride Susan COLBY, celebrated 29th Nov 1829, Suffolk. This could do with more work if it turns out we think we have a winner.

Chr of likely children (other than William 1834) are: Anna Maria (Pakefield 1841), Sarah (Kirkley 1837), Nathaniel (Kirkley 1830), William (Kirkley 1833).


His death was commemorated by an obituary in the an unknown place newspapers DNA link to paulinem133.
