Hi, I am researching the Child family who lived in both London and Shaftesbury/Gillingham/Bourton, Dorset. I have got as far back as John Joseph Child b. abt 1803 in Middlesex who married Susanna(h) Ponsford b.1810 in 1828 in Melcombe Regis. I also know that John's mother was Called Elizabeth and was born in Shaftesbury in abt. 1778. However I have no idea who John's father was. I am guessing he was from London as the family seem to have connections there in other parts of my tree. Does anyone know of this Child family?
