John this could be your lot. Ther is no Henry though but not to say he is not there. The fisrst time i was sent these deatils the last 2 children were missing. When the lady went back and looked she found them. I would say Lucy has not finished children yet as that only accounts for 7 years (not bad 6 kids in 7 years). My interest in this family is that i am trying to find a William who came to Australia in 1850. He lists his father as Abraham or Edward (on 2 different certs) so i am hunting. I think someone is going to look at the 1841 census for me also. Not sure how i am going to determine my William unless someone in the family in England remembers Uncle William who went to Australia. This family is looking like the one but who knows whether i will ever priove it. If you know any oldies there i would love you to ask them the question. Are you in England? If so i would love a copy of addresses for all Cants in and around Mt BUres.
Hope this info helps you cos i think it is probably your lot. Liane email me : firstname.lastname@example.org
