Welcome to RootsChat :)

Think he was born in Buckland Devon, - as per the 1901 census: Class: RG13; Piece: 5061; Folio: 42; Page: 51.

He's down as Fred, wife is Maria, and lots of children.

Think this is him in 1861 in Torrington Devon

Grace Balkwill  wf      40     glover   "  Langtree
Fred Balkwill   son      9     scholar   " Buckland
John Balkwill   son      4                  " Sheepwash
Thomas Balkwill son   2                           "  "

Can't see him in 1871 - his parents and two other siblings Lucy (10) and Bessie (6) are still in Sheepwash - Class: RG10; Piece: 2197; Folio: 12; Page: 15

in any search for having Richard as his father, i'm getting birth and christening dates that don't match up at all. I've also found possible parents being a John and Mary, any confirmation would be great. thanks!

When I search for Richard balkwill and his wife Ann Allen, I keep coming up with parents being a Charles balkwill and a Jane bowman. Can anything else be found for confirmation? I dislike finding out I've been tracking the wrong people. 😉
