Yes. But I am just learning how to use this message board format. How do I delete/discontinue previous messages/queries that address multiple searches some of which have been completed ?

Hi

If you have additional information or a follow up question relating to the same person/family then continue on the original post.

The problem with multiple topics relating to the same person/family is that people can spend time duplicating information already provided because they are not aware of other topics.

Unfortunately not all questions can be answered easily, you are looking for a person with a common name who married, and was possibly born, in a particular location but is there any evidence that he died there? Have you found the various family members on the 1841 or later censuses ? This may help narrow down when he died. In England & Wales deaths after 1st July 1837 were registered in the Registration District where the person died which may not be where they normally resided.

yrs old Rachel is 40.

In the 1841 census ages for people over 15 were supposed to be rounded down to the nearest 5 years so that means Robert could be any age between 50 and 54, and Rachel any age between 40 and 44

Hi

As advised on previous posts - freebmd is the site to use to look for this type of information

www.freebmd.org.uk

Unfortunately deaths prior to the mid-1860's do not show ages and with such a common surname it may be difficult to find the right entry

Have you looked for him in later censuses?
