Now that Leicestershire records are online I've had a look at the baptism for Amy on 28 June 1837, and it says d/o the late William & Rebecca, Charles Street, Labourer. 

Also there was a daughter Elizabeth baptised in 1808 at the same time as Ann.

Thanks for that info.  Excellent... From censuses it looks like Amy was born about 1826, although baptised in 1836.

The Elizabeth baptised with Ann in 1808 I will need to look at.  An Elizabeth appears in the 1841 with Rebecca 60, Amy 14, and Elizabeth 9.  So either the 1808 Elizabeth died or the Elizabeth aged 9 on the 1841 is a grand daughter.  The latter is probs more likely as Rebecca actually would of been about 53 when she was born.

I can also now narrow down the death of Wm SIMPKIN to 1826ish - 1836 (the baptism of Amy) thanks that your info today.

Thanks again,

bitzar.
