Hi, Thank you for replying and this is exciting news!I would like to pass on some more info- James Yeldon (I suspect) was born circa 1800 he married twice Martha Jest 27 September 1824 (Can't find any issue) Esther Thorogood 21 June 1841. Issue Richard Thorogood Yeldon c1939 (My gggrandfather) James Thorogood Yeldon (b. not known) Mary Yeldon 27 Feb 1847. Elizabeth Yeldon 5 August 1849. James(c1800) father William I feel possibly married round this time with a possible birth c1775. Will leave this with you in the hope it may fit in somewhere. I do hope so as I'm "stuck"at James at the moment! Regards, Gail.
