Hi

Henry Sanders head Hawker 36
Rachael wife 24
Mary age 16
William age 14 Hawker
John  age 10
Henry age 5

Regards,

Thanks for your searches Jim.

On balance I think Cathay's find is more likely.  Henry's age aligns better, and the possibility of settling into a house within Edward's generation is, I think, less likely.

In the 1901 census, Edward's birthplace has moved from Bournemouth to the Isle of Wight.  Sybil is recorded as Susan, and they also have two more daughters - Betsy and Caroline.

Excellent work Cathay! 

I did think I'd never heard of a son being called Britannia - daughters yes, but certainly not sons.

The Susan / Sybil question cleared up, and the line traced back to Sussex - result!!

Many thanks

Thanks for the offer Cathay.  I do need some time to draw up the tree as it stands at the moment.  I've got to take it down to the family for Christmas.  So I'll pass on that for the time being.

Many thanks
