There's a late baptism for Henrietta Louisa Fitzpatrick Bromfield at St Thomas, Coventry on August 13th 1856:

Born 31 December 1824.

Daughter of Percy Fitzpatrick and Frances Bromfield. Father's occupation Physician.

After Coventry, Percy Fitzpatrick's trail seems to lead to Mauritius and a marriage in 1836. See http://genforum.genealogy.com/fitzpatrick/messages/1819.html. There were at least two daughters from that marriage, but that's for another post

Wow!! All my life I have had only part of the story and with the help of ShaunJ and Trish1120 most of the gaps have been filled in. Thank you.
I have Percy Fitzpatrick Bromfield’s site notes for the construction of a railway on Mauritius. This was for an investment that he and his father made in a sugar plantation. The venture was not a financial success. The railway was sold and removed to Madagascar. I understand that PFB was in Mauritius for two and a half years. He must have returned to England as I have the list of passengers from the sailing ship Madawaska. That ship was built in Quebec 1847 for Fieldon & Co. Liverpool.3 mast rig 127'x26'x18'(561 tons).The list records 142 passengers. PFB is on the list bound for Sydney.
My mother’s notes show that the six children of Percy Fitzpatrick Bromfield that survived to adulthood were:-
Percy William
Henry
Walter Morrison
Charles?
Emily
Frances
Percy William had 5 daughters, 1 son (Herbert)
Henry(Solicitor) had 2 sons - Stuart & Lawrence
Walter Morrison had 1 son(my grandfather WHCB & 1 daughter (known as Daisy) but Margaret?
Charles-?
Emily and Frances never married.

I am still looking for more accurate records. Good night and thank you all.

Hello,

Percy Fitzpatrick Bromfield that was born in Coventry as illegitimate son to Frances Bromfield, dressmaker in around 1822, died in Toorak, Victoria, Australia, 1908. Is this post about the physician/train line entrepreneur about his father?

Yes.From the information that I have contained in the letter from Percy Fitzpatrick to Percy Fitzpatrick Bromfield (Dated 1849) Percy Fitzpatrick has invested in the sugar plantation in Mauritius. I do not know if PFB had any interest in the venture but I know that he did survey the route for the railway.
I am not in a position to find my records at the moment but will let you have any more information  that those records contain as soon as I find them.
I have no doubt that Percy Fitzpatrick was the father of PFB who died in 1908.

Hello everyone, thanks for all this fantastic information! :) Thomas Lingard Bromfield is my GG grandfather and I have been researching his mother Fanny (Frances) and his (presumed) half-brothers Percy and Devine, so all this data is great. I had no idea Thomas had a half-sister, Henrietta. I haven't searched Irish records for the family yet, so it's helpful to know the family was in Dublin at one point in time.

Thomas Lingard Bromfield was Fanny's (Frances's) eldest illegitimate child and he did not live with Fanny and her other children, he was brought up by his grandparents John and Jennet Bromfield. This is why Thomas says that John Bromfield is his father on his marriage certificate to Emma Heap- John is in fact his grandfather, who brought him up. Thomas was apprenticed to a relative - another Thomas Bromfield, possibly an uncle - and became a watch maker and lived all his life in Coventry. I have always assumed that his father's name was Lingard, and that he is not Percival Fitzpatrick's son, so Percy and Devine are his half-brothers. I will keep searching!
