I thought that I would post this as I see there have been two new responses.
My g-g-grandparents were Alfred and Eliza (Knight) Weal. They had a son Alfred II b. 1854 in Doddinghurst, Essex. Alfred II married Annie Pearce in Lewisham, Kent in 1880.
Here is my line from Alfred I's parents:

I know I have other stuff around here but I am so disorganized I can't seem to remember which file it is in...
PLEASE feel free to e-mail any time. I would love to keep chipping away at this, and, if you would be so kind, could you send me any info that I may be able to use to fill in the gaps.
p.s. Can someone please tell me what a "mangling woman" did? It sounds dreadful!
