Follow up: Francis Newham died aged 54, on 15th April 1883 at Camberwell Infirmary.He was a commercial traveller who lived at 29 Regent Street, Southampton Street, Camberwell.He died of Diffuse Cellulitis Gangrene.
I have found an entry on the IGI for the christening of a Francis Newham on 29th November 1829 at Saint Dunstan, Stepney, London, England. Parents were Francis Newham and Margaret Wallbanks.I am 90% certain this is the right Francis as the dates and name of father tie in.
It would appear that Francis Jnr had several siblings: - John Newham (also christened on 29th Nov 1829) - Margaret (also christened on the same date) - Sarah (also christened with the others) (see I'm not the first Sarah Newham in my family!!!:o) - Thomas born 8 Sept 1830, christened 11 May 1834)
I would like to share this information in the hope that it might prompt other members who are researching the same family to come forward.So far, there hasn't been any one else researching this family.
