« on: Tuesday 24 February 15 15:41 GMT (UK) »
so far i have richard taylor born 1807 in devon son george taylor born 1825 in devon married mary seldon in 1848.
next generation is frederick born gloucester in 1850.he had a son joseph born 1879 in liverpool and then he had a son born in liverpool..joseph 1904.now a friend is asking me are these circus folki?apparently it is said in the family that they worked for coco the clown but as he was born 1900 i dont think this can be right at all.so just wondering if anyone has knowledge of them being attached to a circus?

It wouldn't appear to be the case given the 1861 occupation unless it changed dramatically in later generations
