Re: David Barwise of Bromfield/Harrington
I've not found out any more. I put it to Fred, and he also agreed, but the point has always bothered me.
The other assumption I made that has been discussed elsewhere is that Frances, Benjamin (my ancestor) and Joseph (yours) were all baptised in 1792. I reckoned that Benjamin was born about 1775. If Joseph is the same Joseph that appeared in the 1851 census in Liverpool, he would have been born about 1780.
BTW. The only Barwise of mine in the Freebmd list was Arthur Barwise, born 1883. He never had any family as far as I know, and was killed at sea during WW2.
