Not having much luck finding them 1841 ::)

Have some of them Channel Islands 1851, and Isabels marriage to John Dary. I presume you already have this though as you are looking for 1841 info.

Will keep looking :D

Thank yo Trish for both your offer of help and information. That was interesting the Mary St. George Rees also went to a Navy School. She went on to marry a John Clark.
No, I didn't have Isabel being in the Channel Is in 1851. I only have that she married  John Bellini Day 1854 Islington and 6 kids atarting from 1856.

As for Mary Rees nee Pocock, all her Pocock family were teachers around Bristol, so I might go back searching there.

I have nothing on Manning Rees, so it is possible that he died.

As for the possible child No 5 Rose Mary b. 1837 Frome Somerset, I am trying to tie her in with a Rose Mary who married Henry Lewis Elton and were living in Claines Worcestershire in 1861.

Once again, thank you

Thank you Ian for your effort and reference.

William Gilbert Rees was the eldest son of Lt. William Lee Rees and Mary Pocock. He became a pioneer of the Queenstown area of NZ.

I have just recently (4 days ago) made contact with a DAY who descends from Wm Gilbert's sibling Isobel Rees (Mr. John B.Day).

So I am now keen to find more on Lt. Wm Lee Rees' other chn.

There is a lot written about one of his brother's John, my ancestor.
Three of the Rees family of Haverfordwest married 3 from the Pocock family of Bristol.
Regards,

Fantastic Trish. That makes Rose the daughter of George Pocock and Mary Rees, thus Isabel Rose Day's first cousin and not younger sister.

Thank you very much.

You have been a great help.
