Thanks Eileen...just after I sent you the message I found the Larke Hosford marriage date which correlates with yours. The only person who seems to have disappeared is Henry, the child of Mary -Anne's first marriage. Cant find anything. If u have any clues that would be great. I am now at the stage of getting extracts starting with Joseph and Mary Anne's marriage which should give me details of their fathers. And, yes you should visit Australia its a fine place just like Canada I would expect. My brother has been here 3 times and sees them as similar and wonderful. Lol Thanks again.
