Long time since we were in contact. See you are still stuck on Francis Appleby birn 1823 Sunderland. I am still researching Robert Appleby born 1777 at Sunderland. My dilema is that there were three Robert Appleby's born in 1777. One at Sunderland, one at Kirkby Malzeard and one at Walkworth in Northumberland. Look forward to hearing from you again. Good researching to you. Have you ever found anyone else who has Sunderland connections. Would love their contact email if so. Best Regards.
