Hello Harry Thank you for your message. I think he may be the one.He was living in Sculcoates with his father and mother in the 1841 census and they were both said to be shoemakers. The father was John also, born abt.1776. The only John, born 1776, I can find comes from the N.East.i.e. John son of Robert and Ann from Simond-Burn near Hexham. Barbara.
